About the Foundation

The mission of the Business of Good Foundation, established by Tim McCarthy, is to serve those who serve the poor. Over the years, the foundation has dedicated over $10 million and countless hours to supporting non-profits focused on aiding the working poor, with a focus on knowledge, job creation, and fostering self-employment as long-term poverty solutions. The foundation's mission is "serving those who serve the poor," and it has been self-funded, with an initial allocation of 25% of the company's pre-tax profits each year to develop the foundation.
