Who We Are

We’re members – just like you

Greater Iowa Credit Union is a federally insured, state-chartered community credit union with eight branch locations in Ames, Des Moines, Waukee, Denison and Indianola and coming to Ankeny in fall of 2020! GICU is an ever growing, member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative with assets of $538 million.

The GICU story began with just nine people in June of 1932. Over the years, we have grown exponentially from our humble beginning of working out of the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds office on Iowa State University’s campus. Today, we serve 33,000+ members throughout a 33-county area in Central and Western Iowa with a staff base of over one hundred.

At Greater Iowa, we believe in supporting the communities we serve and providing a wide variety of top-notch products and services to help our members achieve their financial goals. We are passionate about providing exceptional service and take time to get to know our members individually to ensure we find the best products and services to meet their needs.

While technology will continue to change; the products, services and how we server our members’ will never change. Our philosophy and mission has not weathered since day one: "Not for profit, not for charity, but for service – people helping people".
