Headquartered in West Lafayette, Indiana, Purdue Federal Credit Union was founded on the Purdue University campus in 1969 by a group of Purdue employees searching for a place where they, their families and their fellow employees could save and borrow money safely, confidentially and at a fair rate of interest.
The credit union’s name reflects its membership base, which includes students, faculty and staff, and communities where Purdue University and its regional campuses operate.
Purdue Federal is a member-owned financial cooperative with more than 73,000 members nationwide and assets exceeding $1billion. Its purpose is to be its members’ trusted financial partner for life and its staff is driven by superior member service and dedication to the Greater Lafayette and La Porte communities.
Purdue Federal remains strong because it has stayed true to its original purpose – people helping people. Purdue Federal Credit Union has been a SkoolLive advertiser on the campus of La Porte High School for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years.
