ABOUT THE FINANCIAL LITERACY COALITION OF CENTRAL TEXAS
FLCCT was incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 2004 under the leadership of the Travis County AgriLife Exention Office. FLCCT is now a largely autonomous organization that receives some in-kind support from AgriLife.
FLCCT’s service model is to pair our trained and caring volunteer teachers with organizations whose members/clients need personal financial instruction. We usually partner with other NPOs who help lower income Texans succeed in life, although we will teach anyone with an interest in learning about personal finance.
