3rd Decade™

Gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to build financial security. The 3rd decade of your life, your 20s and 30s, is the most critical time for planning and maximizing future financial success.

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

TCIF’s 3rd Decade™ program, led by financial experts, increases your financial confidence and success. While in your 20s and 30s, it 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.

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