The 3rd Decade Program

The TCI Foundation (TCIF), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was founded to provide the financial education young adults should have received in school.

TCIF offers the 3rd Decade program, led by financial experts, to increase your financial confidence and success. The 3rd Decade is the most critical time for planning and maximizing future financial success. Young adults are particularly at risk and are too often targeted by financial services that don't have their best interests in mind.

Poor financial decisions early in life can compromise financial security for years. At a minimum, we want you to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to make good decision. And, we want you to learn that financial security is more about good money habits and decisions rather than how much you make.

Bob Swift, founder of TCI Wealth Advisors, is committed to providing access to professional advice and financial education through TCIF and the 3rd Decade program. So important is this goal that participants in the 3rd Decade program are able to earn financial incentives.

It is time for you to Get Started.

It’s a problem for any public place but Tumamoc, in particular, is a scientific research site for heaven’s sake! So, one regular walker, Janet Miller, took it upon herself to start a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to buy reusable bottles to replace the ubiquitous plastic bottles. She hired a graphic designer to create a … [Read More...]
