The Timothy's Gift Experience

Timothy's Gift March 2015-424.JPG

If you’ve been on a tour with Timothy’s Gift, you've already felt the impact when we call an inmate by name, sing them Happy Birthday, invite them to the stage, and give them the gifts of music, friendship, and in the end, the simple act of communion, or breaking bread.

 

We call our events “concerts,” but more so, they are experiences of an inmate's own worth and humanity.  We look beyond what they've done and help them see who they really are -- and it has had as much impact as any "official" program we've seen to date.  It has transformed prison cultures, lowered recidivism, and helped thousands of inmates improve their odds of a safe, empathetic, and productive life upon their release.  

 

Our philosophy is that every crisis – emotional, spiritual or societal – is a crisis of identity.  And through our programs, we aim to help restore broken identities and stop the corrosive effects of cynicism through compassion, encouragement, and yes, plenty of MUSIC!  

 

2022 tour information COMING SOON!

NOTE: Rarely are we allowed to film inside a prison, but please enjoy the Photo Gallery, and watch for our upcoming Dear Timothy's Gift page, with letters from inmates and families!
