After much anticipation, this holiday season we are excited to announce our Ankeny location will be open for business starting on Monday, December 14th!

Our new branch will be located at 1700 SE Delaware Ave across from Kohl's Plaza. We’re excited to expand our GICU roots in the community, and bring greater rates, greater options and greater service to Ankeny!

“Greater Iowa Credit Union is excited to be joining an impressive, thriving community of businesses and community members in Ankeny with the opening of our new branch on Delaware Avenue. We look forward to serving our new and current members more conveniently by bringing GICU products and services to where they live and do business. Our team is eager to establish professional and philanthropic partnerships with local organizations and deliver the message of who GICU is at our core. We look forward to becoming an integral part of the community working 'to better the financial well-being of our members and the communities we serve.'"

Scott Zahnle, GICU President/CEO

GICU is a federally insured, state-chartered community credit union with eight current branch locations in Ames, Des Moines, Waukee, Denison and Indianola and now expanding to Ankeny.

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.

Stay tuned to our social media accounts for the latest updates on construction progress and other fun opening details! While the pandemic will limit our abilities to host a grand opening event, we plan to make the most of what we are able to do safely in our current environment. We will have special giveaways for the first members to visit us after opening, as well as special promotions and prize baskets coming in January!
