Hall Family Foundation
What we fund and the impact we seek
We focus our grantmaking in a way that honors our founders’ intent and operates in alignment with our mission, vision, and values – to center our work on ensuring all people experience what is possible.
We understand that improving life for all requires an interconnected approach. Therefore, through our grantmaking we seek to increase economic opportunities of all, with an intentional focus on communities of color, those not earning a livable wage, and families experiencing poverty. Kansas City’s community needs will guide us as we work together to create stronger partnerships with communities, nonprofit partners, and foundation colleagues, in order to increase opportunities for all to succeed.
We believe that as we expand our reach and increase our impact through new, strengthened, and reimagined partnerships within our three impact areas, we will help build a community where an improved quality of life is equitable and enjoyable by all.
To achieve our vision of enabling all people in our community to experience what is possible; to achieve their greatest potential, and to create a bigger impact, our grantmaking will focus on three interconnected impact areas: KC Spirit, Prospering Communities, and Growing Minds.

Prospering Communities: Increasing equity for all
- To support families through organizations and initiatives that take a holistic approach to reducing poverty and increasing equity and well-being.
- Communities prosper when there are equitable opportunities to access education, housing, employment, and health care. We prioritize investments that take systemic and comprehensive approaches to increasing opportunities for all to thrive in their neighborhoods of choice.
- Grantmaking focuses on economic inclusion – livable neighborhoods – healthcare – emergency and safety net services.
Growing Minds: Creating strong educational foundation for life
- We prioritize investments that improve outcomes and access to quality programming for children and their families in education.
