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.

Life

ABORTION: Life is a precious gift from God—even from the moment of conception. This screen seeks to protect the life of the unborn by screening out companies involved in the abortion industry, including fetal tissue research and the manufacturing and distribution of abortifacients.

Purity

PORNOGRAPHY: Our culture has exchanged true beauty and sexuality for the lust of the eyes and impurity—and seeks to make it a commodity. This screen identifies companies engaged in the promotion of adult themes through advertisements, media, games, stores, establishments, publications, and the Internet.

Family

ENTERTAINMENT: Families are the foundation of our culture, and the values we instill need to be preserved. This screen identifies companies engaged in anti-family entertainment through the promotion of violence, language, sex and drugs through advertisements, media, games, stores, establishments, and publications.

Marriage

LIFESTYLE: Marriage is holy—instituted by God. This screen filters to recognize companies that affirm the marriage covenant, a sacred bond between a man and a woman instituted by and publicly entered into before God.

Liberty

RIGHTS: We are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These rights are removed from many people across the world. This screen identifies companies that are involved in human oppression, human trafficking, slave labor, terrorism, and Christian persecution.

Stewardship

GAMBLING: We are called to be wise stewards with all that God has given us— not as one who gambles away his money or brings himself to ruin. This screen identifies gambling related activities, including equipment manufacturers, casinos, riverboats, cruise lines, racetracks, and gambling software.


Longevity

TOBACCO: Known as a silent killer and a common cause of lung cancer, we do not invest in companies that manufacture tobacco. This screen identifies manufacturers of cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco products, tobacco leaf distributors and marketers, and tobacco specific retail stores.

Sobriety

ALCOHOL: Alcohol addiction hurts and destroys children and families; therefore, we do not invest in companies that manufacture alcohol. This screen identifies companies that enable these abuses, including brewers, distillers, microbrewers, and winemakers.

Types of Screens

These screens include abortion, pornography, entertainment, lifestyle, and rights. Our faith-based screens represent areas that are more closely linked to clear teachings found in Scripture.

These screens include gambling, tobacco, and alcohol. Our social screens represent areas more closely linked to various social abuses in society. In other words, these may be areas where a certain element of "Christian liberty" could be expressed, but because of the overwhelming abuses and destruction caused to society in these areas, it is something that we screen.

The Process

  • Step One

  • Step Two

    Removing Companies. Once a company has violated any one of our screens, it is removed as a viable investment option. This information is actively updated and communicated to all of our fund managers for their compliance according to this standard.
  • Step Three

    Monitoring. Our fund portfolios are spot-checked to determine the involvement a company may have with our screened areas. We operate with a zero-tolerance stance on any company that violates our screens; in other words, if any company we currently own is determined to be within a violation, we will liquidate immediately.
