Several years ago, Brad Hall served as Mission President for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico City, Mexico. He and his wife Andrea had the opportunity to meet and work among hundreds of young adults.
These bright men and women came from various cultures and backgrounds and sacrificed eighteen months or two years to serve a full-time mission and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Brad and Andrea saw many of these young people return to their home countries where opportunities were scarce and education unavailable.
In the years we have been operating, we have been privileged to help students from some pretty diverse areas of the world. For example, we’ve worked with students fromEthiopia, Ghana, and Uzbekistan. Students would not have been able to receive this type of education without our help.
The education each student reeves will allow them to return to their home countries and make a real difference. And you can make a difference, too! You can donate to the Hall Foundation and help us make the educational dreams of young return missionaries around the world come true
After completing his service as a mission president, Brad and Andrea Hall returned to their homier southeast Idaho and began to look into how they could make this dream a reality.
With the help of their family and numerous others, they eventually created The Hall Foundation with the express goal of helping international members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who have honorably served a full-time mission.
The Hall Foundation is different from Pathway Program and other church sponsored education programs, and is not designed to replace them. Instead, our foundation represents a unique scholarship opportunity for international return missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The students selected by the Hall Foundation are provided with early financial sponsorship and training in a variety of skills that allow them to become self-sufficient as they receive and education. Due to the support structure we have been able to build there, we generally sponsor students attending BYU-Idaho in Rexburg, Idaho.
