My 10 Percent supports and empowers the forgotten youth in our society by giving them hope for a future that they desire and faith that what they desire is possible.
Join the fight. Help us support forgotten youth.
My 10 Percent's Mission is to give forgotten youth HOPE for a future they desire and FAITH that what they desire will come to fruition. We will do this by extending LOVE through my own 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was launched in 2018.
During our first year, we’ve supported adoptive families with our partner Jockey Being Family. We've also supported foster youth programs such as Rawhide and Excellerate, as well as provided support to Eye Heart World, which helps victims of sex trafficking, and fights to end the epidemic. Back home in Dallas, we’ve worked with Hope Supply Co., which helps meet the critical needs of homeless children in the area.
Where does the name come from?
The Bible talks about giving a tithe (10 percent), and also cheerfully giving to those in need (2 Corinthians 9:6-9). Part of my personal tithe is my platform and the influence that I now have. And, I will cheerfully use my platform and influence to give to those in need.
It was Jesus who said “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5 NKJV). It is because of Jesus that I am able to do what I am doing. The fruit that Jesus is talking about that will be given to those from My 10 Percent includes love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
Ty is the only child of Lisa Montgomery, who raised her son alongside 17 foster brothers in Dallas, Texas.
During his childhood, Ty saw first-hand the important role and influence fostering has had on his brothers. Now, he wants to do his part to support foster teens as they prepare for adulthood, by giving them the life skills necessary to bear a fruitful and successful life.
Through Ty’s foundation, My 10 Percent, a registered 501c3, he has helped launch the Excellerate program in Green Bay.
Additionally, Ty has served as a board member for Eye Heart World, that helps support victims of sex trafficking and fights to end the epidemic. In November, My 10 Percent provided a substantial amount of food to the Rose Home, in Brown County Wisconsin, that houses women who have been victims of sex trafficking.
