About TYH Foundation

OUR VISION:

The core purpose of the TYH Humanitarian Foundation is to continue Tim’s legacy of caring and compassion for others. The Foundation partners with various research entities, humanitarian organizations and civic groups whose own mission reflect the concept of “Team Humanity.” We know we are all part of a bigger world and must work together to make it better.

Tim’s character is best defined in an English paper he wrote sophomore year entitled, Ismless. “I believe that happiness rests on the compassion that all individuals can develop. While restraining factors that inhibit compassion, it is more important to cultivate those that are conducive to it. Love, patience, tolerance and humility are all virtues that nurture compassion.”

Even during his courageous battle with cancer, Tim lived those virtues. Today those “tisms” continue to inspire his friends and family to keep paying his dream forward. We invite You to be part of our TYH efforts.
