Dear Fellow Member-Owners,
Happy New Year! I hope you had a joy filled holiday season
surrounded by your loved ones. As we enter the new year, I would
like to remind you how thankful both I and the entire Notre Dame
Federal Credit Union staff are to serve you each year.
In 2018, we reinvested $1,104,128 dollars into the Michiana
community- an all-time high! When you bank with Notre Dame
FCU, we reinvest our profits in you and the community you live, work
and play in. Thus changing a life a day has become somewhat of a
mantra around the credit union. We are honored to be able to assist
you, your loved ones and all the communites we serve.
With a New Year comes new resolutions. I encourage you to sit
down and ask yourself, what are your financial resolutions for 2019?
It is our mission to help you navigate your personal and professional
finances. Our focus for quarter one is helping you start this year off right
with a financial checkup. This issue of For Your Interest is filled with information on
how to start the year off right to reach your 2019 financial goals.
Stop by any of our branches for a complimentary budget meeting or take advantage of our virtual financial wellness and counseling
programs through our partnership with GreenPath Financial Wellness. As a member of Notre Dame FCU, you can receive assistance with
personal and family budgeting, understanding your personal credit report and how to improve your score, personal money management,
debt repayments, avoiding bankruptcy, foreclosure, repossession and much more. GreenPath can give personalized answers to your
individual needs, see page 4 for more details. Start working towards your 2019 financial goals early. We will also be helping with financial
checkups throughout the year.
If you have any questions, suggestions, comments, or complaints, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected]
Thanks again for being part of our credit union family!
Thomas J. Gryp ‘79
