Timothy Sykes has spent his life making millions in the stock market. A seasoned trader and teacher who has been featured on CNN, Fox News, amongst others, Tim owns and runs the largest online trading academy for penny stocks. A lifelong supporter of education, Tim decided to dedicate his time and energy on a cause he so passionately supports.
Breaking Records with Pencils of Promise
Tim made a $1 million donation to global education organization Pencils of Promise, (their largest charitable donation to date). This donation directly supported the building of schools in Cambodia and Laos, as well as educational programming to help underprivileged children receive life changing education opportunities. Tim made a visit to the kids in Asia, and became increasingly moved by the impact he was making and the energy of the kids affected by the donation. Full of life and promise, Tim knew these kids deserved better, and wanted to continue his support in a bigger way.
The Launch of the Timothy Sykes Foundation
He decided to launch The Timothy Sykes Foundation, a 501c3 charity foundation focused on providing education opportunities to underprivileged children in impoverished areas throughout the world. The foundation provides children of all ages to and grade levels a well-rounded education. With over 35 schools built/in development in nearly a dozen countries, the foundation’s long-term goal is to build 1,000 schools for the millions of children lacking basic math and writing skills across the globe.
Tims describes the Timothy Sykes Foundation as “the most fulfilling idea he’s ever had” and is more than excited to continue on his new charitable endeavor with his foundation. He has committed to donating all of his trading profits from 2016 forward to the construction of new schools as he moves further towards his goal of building 1,000 schools for children in need. In addition to building schools, The Timothy Sykes Foundation has also committed to building a Scholarship House, a soccer stadium and hospital to further the opportunities.
Founded by veteran stock trader Timothy Sykes, The Timothy Sykes Foundation is a 501c3 charitable foundation that is dedicated to building schools and facilities to underprivileged children in over a dozen countries. The foundation has donated to over a dozen charities, including Make-A-Wish, The Boys & Girls Club, Pan Mass Challenge, The Bali Children’s Project, Pencils Of Promise, amongst others.
