All Parishioners in the Diocese of Gary Now Eligible for Membership at Notre Dame Federal Credit Union

Posted on Oct 26, 2021

NOTRE DAME, IN – October 26, 2021 – The Catholic Diocese of Gary is now a Select Employer Group (SEG) of Notre Dame Federal Credit Union (Notre Dame FCU), the nation’s largest Catholic-oriented credit union. The partnership will provide benefits such as credit union membership to parishioners and their families, financial education resources, student scholarships, favorable rates, access to fundraising tools and more.

Notre Dame FCU President/CEO Tom Gryp said, “Our mission for financial empowerment is based in Catholic Social Teachings and we exist to put people before profits. While banks are busy answering to stockholders, we answer to you! Where you bank really DOES matter.”

Notre Dame FCU’s nationally celebrated Elevate fundraising tools allow parishioners to direct funds to eligible parishes, schools, or other non-profits. The ELEVATE benefits include:

  • $150 for completing an annual virtual financial check-up.
  • 1% of every signature transaction using our SCRIP debit and credit cards.
  • A one-time donation of 1% of the total amount of an auto loan.

In 2020, Notre Dame FCU served over 800 Catholic entities located in 26 dioceses and gave back nearly $2 million to the local communities where it serves. Notre Dame FCU’s Lake County headquarters is located in Whiting, Indiana, on historic 119th street in the Illiana building. Visit to learn more.
