Our History

Established in 1935 under the original name of Grand Rapids Municipal Employees Credit Union,the original field of membership was employees of the City of Grand Rapids and their immediate families .   In 2005, our charter was expanded to include employer groups, retirees and associations living or located within a 25-mile radius of the credit union as well as anyone in Kent, Ottawa and Muskegon counties.  The name was changed in 2006 from Grand Rapids Municipal Employees Credit Union to Grand Rapids Family Credit Union to reflect the diversification of membership and emphasis of family and friends.  With a growing membership, growing staff ,and need from the existing membership,  the Credit Union added its third location in January of 2013 at 1815 Breton Rd.
