TFCU seeks to promote thriving communities by financially empowering and educating our member-owners. Teaching financial literacy (how money is earned, managed and saved) at an early age helps kids make smart financial decisions for the rest of their lives.

TFCU also awards scholarships and sponsorships to community students.

Get REAL Financial Reality Fairs

“Money is important, but what you spend it on and how you spend it is more important.”
- High School Senior -

These fairs are fun and action packed. High school seniors are invited to get hands on in this real-life simulation. Students select a career, with that career comes a potential spouse and children. They then seek to ‘purchase’ all of life’s necessities, from cell phones to health insurance and homes! “Sales people love to trick you into buying useless items!”

We seek local volunteers, if you are interested in joining our volunteer list, please email us.
