Our Foundational Principle

When we designed Timothy Plan, we spent countless hours investigating companies to determine if they were involved in any unbiblical practices. In 1994, we pioneered the first pro-life, pro-family screening standard. Our commitment, first to our Lord, is that we will not invest a single penny into any company that violates our screens. Selecting a mutual fund should be about more than its rate of return—it should also be morally responsible. Timothy Plan's mission is to enable you to invest in a manner that combines both of these objectives.
