Who We Are
The Hall Family Foundation is a private philanthropic organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of human life in the Greater Kansas City area. Initiatives that enrich the entire community, help all people, and promote excellence are considered to be of prime importance. The Foundation acts as both a catalyst and collaborative community partner. It seeks to invest in programs that are innovative and strive to create systemic solutions to community needs.
We aspire to be the Foundation that enables all people in our community to experience what is possible; to achieve their greatest potential.
At our core we subscribe to values that help increase our impact. Humility. We are a piece of a larger puzzle and strive daily to recognize it takes many to achieve our goals. We value each other and our partners and we treat them with kindness and respect. Excellence. We believe in the importance of high aspirations, continuous improvement, and accountability. We expect this from ourselves, our partners, and in all we do. We know excellence is not exclusive, and perfection is not the goal, but that continuous progress is. Collaboration. We believe it is important to work with individuals and groups representing different backgrounds, lived experiences, desires, interests, and challenges to learn and understand diverse perspectives and accomplish goals aligned with our mission and strategy. Innovation. We recognize there is more than one way to solve a problem. We value creativity, curiosity, and courage to move closer to solutions. Catalyst. We see our role as developing and proposing ideas, connecting people, leading, and partnering, with the goal of advancing all.
