To help provide scholarships and additional assistance to international return missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who desire to attend BYU-Idaho.
In practice, however, our mission becomes both more specific and more wide spread. We want to find former missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who represent the best of the best and help them to receive a quality education so that they can become successful and make a difference when they return to their homelands.
In order to do this, we must find young men and women – single or married – who are invested in making things better in the land they come from.
When the Hall Foundation was created, it was a simple attempt to help some of the missionaries who had served under the direction of Mission President Brad Hall.
But we soon realized that we wanted to do much more. With every student we helped, we found a renewed desire to find additional students who could benefit from what we offer, and we have used the Hall Foundation to do just that.
While we do provide academic scholarships and additional monetary assistance to International’s students, a large portion of what we do is centered on helping each student learn the skills they need become fully self-sufficient within their first academic year.
After the initial outlay, we provide them with helpful resources instead of additional money. This provides the students with a variety of growth opportunities and allows us to continue providing assistance to additional young men and women from around the world.
The first semester were in operation, were able to help just three students begin their academic journey at a school sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Since then, we have been able to expand our circle of influence and provide assistance to many more students.
We are committed to helping as many students as we can, but our resources can only go so far without the help of donations to the Hall Foundation.
