Biblically Responsible Investors Must Be Aware of Money Being Funneled to Abortion Providers and Pro-Abortion Causes
Timothy Plan Helps Christians Both Screen Funds and Steward Money in a Way That Honors God, With Over $1 Billion Under Management
ORLANDO, Fla.—As pro-life Americans observed both Respect Life Month and Abortion Recovery Awareness Month in October, one biblically responsible family of mutual funds says Christians must pay close attention to corporate dollars that are funneled to abortion providers or pro-abortion causes.
For nearly 25 years, Timothy Plan has helped people achieve their financial goals while investing in a morally responsible manner. Timothy Plan, for example, does not invest in those companies that support abortion, pornography or have other agendas contrary to the teachings of Scripture—or that are actively participating in activities that may prove destructive to our communities-at-large.
“With the rise in Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), people no longer have to choose between funding companies that hurt people or giving up solid investment returns. BRI affords the freedom to invest not only wisely but morally, including matters of the protection of sacred life,” said Art Ally, founder of Timothy Plan.
In part, it was his pro-life commitment that led Ally in 1992 to start helping churches provide biblically sound retirement resources for pastors.
“Believers have the added insight through the Scriptures that all of our money belongs to God, not just the amount we tithe,” Ally said. “So it’s not unreasonable to take responsibility for how our money is used in the marketplace, including investing.”
A few years before that in 1989, Tom Strobhar, a pro-life investment adviser in Dayton, Ohio, began buying a couple of shares in 25 corporations so he could attend stockholders’ meetings and lobby management against donating to Planned Parenthood, investing in pornography or promoting immoral lifestyles.
“Folks like Timothy Plan have made [abortion] an issue so it has worked,” Strobhar told Timothy Plan communications adviser and author Robert Knight in an interview. Strobhar also noted that at least 340 companies that formerly gave to Planned Parenthood have ceased doing so.
While biblically responsible investing is not new, the movement is growing rapidly and extensively. In fact, last year, Timothy Plan alone reached over $1 billion of assets under management.
Since 1994, Timothy Plan has existed to help advisers and investors achieve their financial goals through a pro-life, pro-family approach to investing—not only to benefit the investor but the broader culture. Timothy Plan is firmly committed to running a mutual fund company with the integrity, excellence, and wisdom that brings honor and glory to our Lord Jesus and is a beacon for Godly stewardship in the financial community.
Mutual funds are available through a prospectus (Timothy Plan Prospectus) by contacting the fund or a financial professional. When considering a mutual fund, investors should always carefully read the prospectus before inventing to analyze the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.
