At age 52, God called Art Ally to change his career path (a 15 year financial consultant/branch manager and 12 year public accountant) to launch America's first pro-life/pro-family mutual—fund. Through much prayer and faith in this calling, Mr. Ally sold his financial planning practice and pressed forward, moving into a nearby modest building, where Timothy Plan was born.
Raising one million dollars from a small group of loyal and faithful Christian investors through a local limited partnership (Timothy Partners, Ltd.), Mr. Ally went forth on the mission God had called him to embark upon.
Mr. Ally decided to initially focus on five major factors: abortion, pornography, alcohol, tobacco and casino gambling. Years later, the filters for anti-family entertainment and alternative lifestyles were added to the mix, rounding out the filters that the Timothy Plan is known for today.
