Announcing Timmy Global Health’s 2014-15 Annual Report:
A year of great progress for the organization and the people we serve locally and abroad!
Dear Friends of Timmy Global Health:
We are pleased to say—without a doubt—that Timmy Global Health’s programmatic achievements reached greater heights in 2014-15 than ever before. In the last year, we provided more patients with access to basic healthcare services than at any time in our history. And it’s all thanks to the hard work of our staff, the collaborative efforts of our international partners, the thousands of service hours put in by our volunteers, and the generosity of donors like you.
From small beginnings, Timmy has grown into a nation-wide and international nonprofit. In the last five years, we’ve increased our annual program budget by 128 percent—tripling the number of medical teams and volunteers that we send abroad, and treating three times as many patients. In the last year alone, we expanded our student chapters to a dozen new campuses, invested heavily in our student scholarship program, and improved our health education efforts through health promoter trainings. But perhaps most importantly, we’ve done it all while maintaining the fiscal responsibility and financial prudence Timmy is known for— dedicating more than 93% of our total resources to programmatic activities.
Today we’re making a bigger impact than ever before. As we plan for the 2016-17 fiscal year, Timmy has never been better positioned to continue fighting for a world in which everyone—regardless of who they are or where they live–has access to the quality healthcare they deserve. But we can’t do it without your continued support. As those who have visited a Timmy community in Ecuador, Guatemala, Nigeria, the Dominican Republic, or here at home in Indianapolis know all too well, the health disparities faced by Timmy patients are vast. While those realities are undeniable, they are also addressable. And I’m proud to be working with Timmy to make sure everyone has the promise of a healthy future.
We are proud to present our 2014-15 Annual Report. As you’ll see in the report, Timmy’s mission—to expand access to healthcare and empower the next generation of leaders to tackle global health challenges—reached new heights in the past 12 months. Even as we celebrate our success, we know there is much more work to be done. Since 1997, you’ve believed in our mission and powered our work. It’s with profound appreciation that we thank you for your generosity and support!

The IU Virtu Project
As part of Timmy’s mission of empowering students, the organization is thrilled to support this unique opportunity to work with the Virtu Project at Indiana University, a business course focused on mock investing and the stock market. The Virtu Project creates a unique opportunity for students to engage in a three-year course focused on hands-on learning, particularly in the areas of ethical investing, networking, teamwork, and creative problem-solving. The project generates funds for Timmy through a combination of donor pledges and mock investing in the stock market, and over the past five years has raised over $45,000 for the organization.
