“Giving back has always been a part of our DNA .”
In 2006, Ken and Libby Tracy saw that hospitals needed a partner to better serve patients and families. They founded TaleMed, a company serving healthcare facilities across the USA, which eventually grew to be one of the top healthcare companies in the country.
Inspired by the value of each person, the Tracys wanted to empower volunteers to use their skills to serve local communities. So, as they grew the business, they built inside it a platform for employees to grow as people and professionals by giving back. Over the years, teams have volunteered in both local and international communities.
Today, because of TaleMed’s success, the Tracys have transformed their internal service platform into an independent nonprofit called Impacting Tomorrow and are bringing their business skills to the nonprofit sector.
What started as a simple call to connect others quickly turned into a bigger vision. Together, they began crafting a model for more sustainable ways to build up those around them by reminding people of their innate resilience.
Impacting Tomorrow grew out of their core belief that ministry can be both excellent—providing the best quality work—and relational—allowing all people to live into their inherent dignity. Everyone has the potential to thrive in life, but it takes intentionality to call it out.
The Tracys, through Impacting Tomorrow, are continuing to channel their knowledge of the business world to make nonprofits more effective and people-centric experience by coordinating with other community partners.
We’re making our communities stronger by facilitating volunteerism, resource donations, and learning opportunities for all
1. We provide volunteers with opportunities to serve and strengthen their communities in hands-on ways
2. We offer resources for people including food, clothing, and the opportunity to grow
3. We collaborate with other non-profits to improve our capacity and capability to serve the community.
We – as a team – are committed to doing our part to make our local and global communities a better place. We want everyone who comes into contact with Impacting Tomorrow to walk away RICHER.
We respect every person as valuable and worthy of love and care. We take the time to learn one another’s stories so we can see each other as beautifully complex human beings.
We are always looking for sustainable solutions to challenges faced by people and communities where we live and work.
Many people we work with deal with inconsistency in our lives. We work to provide encouragement, resources, and structure to all who come to us, ensuring that everyone has a safe environment in which to grow.
We show willingness to ask for input and listen. Everyone has something to offer. We treat everyone with dignity. We are part of something bigger than ourselves and work to contribute to that greater good.
We give our best, not our leftovers. We give excellent service and resources because everyone is worthy – first-class citizens. Everyone who interacts with us feels good when they arrive and when they leave.
We see the resilience in each other and call it out, reminding each other that we are stronger than we think. We have and will continue to overcome challenges.
