GSFCU Member Testimonials
I have been a member of Grossmont Schools Federal Credit
Union for over 38 years.
Each and every staff person of GSFCU over these
years has always been friendly, well organized and
oriented to my specific needs.
They have helped me through the purchase of my cars,
my home and starting a college fund for my
granddaughter. They are the keepers of my checking and
savings accounts and I have never had a single problem.
I highly recommend GSFCU for all your financial needs.

The GSFCU is a very significant financial institution
for my entire family.
I remember establishing accounts for automatic
payroll deductions when I first started my employment
with the Grossmont Union High School District in 1976. Currently I have
savings accounts, checking accounts and loans with
husband and I, along with our three adult children have
all benefited from excellent customer service and a
variety of services this institution has to offer.
We enjoy personal service and quick turn-around
on documents when dealing with the GSFCU staff.
Ive even been on the receiving end of personal
service at my school site by a GSFCU representative when
I was on a tight time-line to get documents signed and
unable to get to the credit union during business hours.
Customer service doesnt get much better than
really cares about their customers.
I highly recommend membership.
"I became a member of GSFCU during a fundraising
opportunity for one of our district high schools.
Their friendly, customer service-oriented manner
in making means available for this endeavor, was a
formula for success."
"GSFCU is a convenient alternative to public banking
because of their hometown feel and their top-notch
Their commitment to our district is not just lip
perfect example of their dedication to the events and
programs of our district is demonstrated by their
involvement and attendance at each of our monthly
governing board meetings.

Grossmont Union High School District
"As the new Chief Business Officer of the Grossmont
Union High School District in 2006, I was surprised to
learn that the districts' Primary Financial Institution
relationship was held by the local credit union serving
our employees, and not one of the large regional banks
that had served the district for over 20 years.
I quickly learned why.
Not only had Grossmont Schools Federal Credit
Union prevailed in our "Request For Proposal for
Financial Services" in August 2005, going head-to-head
with several major financial institutions in terms of
services and pricing, our Fiscal Services, Food Services
and ASB staff members have raved about their "service
after the sale"."
"GSFCU has provided us with a custom array of services,
pricing, and information delivery options that were
simply not available from any of the "other" financial
They have clearly "raised the bar" as a business
partner for the
Grossmont Union High School District."

Sharon and I considered arrangements for a car loan, we
looked for options using the usual criteriai.e.,
competitive rates and other costs, informative and
competent representatives, convenience of payment
through payroll deduction, etc. In talking with two of
my colleagues, I learned that a positive experience had
come from securing a loan at Grossmont Schools Federal
Credit Union. That, coupled with GSFCU CEO Steve
Devans active participation on our
College Foundation Board
and GSFCUs generous support of our Foundation events,
led to giving them a careful review. We were very
pleased that GSFCUs loan package and our initial
interaction with the staff there exceeded our
expectations. Our GSFCU car loan has been a
rewarding financial arrangement ever since, and we look
forward to continuing that relationship well
into our years in retirement.
A few years ago, my wife and I changed from a bigger
Credit Union here in town to the Grossmont Schools
Federal Credit Union.
We talk all the time about how much money we have
saved making the switch, especially that dreaded $1.50
charge at the ATM that we always seemed to get at our
old Credit Union.
With the Grossmont Schools FCU, we can find an
ATM anywhere in town that is free.
I like to tell people that we get "Big League"
service with "Minor League" fees and lines.

When the East County Retired Teachers approached the
Grossmont Schools Federal Credit Union several years ago
for help with an organization project, Steve Devan, the
CEO, welcomed us as valued friends. This credit union
does so much more than offer the most efficient
financial services to members; it seeks to become a
community partner by initiating, promoting and involving
itself in programslike the CRTA Directory or its own
financial literacy outreach to the schools in the
