The Foundation’s grantmaking in the area of PK-12 education seeks to promote excellence and access to a quality education for all children in Kansas City. The Hall Family Foundation was one of three funders of the multimillion dollar SchoolSmartKC initiative. SchoolSmartKC is working in the areas of parent engagement, expanding and replicating quality schools, improving schools with high growth potential and demanding quality. The ultimate goal of SchoolSmartKC is to increase the number of quality seats in the Kansas City Public School System, including both charter and public schools. This grant is an example of collaboration between foundations with a focus on catalytic, systems change for students in the Kansas City Public School System.
