We are a family-oriented organization with a rich history committed to serving the foundational financial interests of members of all ages. Our roots extend back to 1892, when a little over 700 immigrants from East Central Europe combined their meager assets of about $600 to form our Fraternal Benefit Society. Their guiding principle was to help each other in times of need. Since 1892, GCU has successfully managed its assets, thus earning the trust of our members. They, in turn, respond by introducing others to the benefits of GCU membership.
