Lyle Shantz Hallman was a generous philanthropist who during the course of his lifetime (1922-2003) worked to make a lasting difference in the lives of the people of his home community of Waterloo Region. His strong commitment to education, health and children is reflected in the mission of the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation which Lyle established in September 2003.
The Lyle S. Hallman Foundation continues Lyle’s tradition of giving by providing grants to organizations in Waterloo Region that support health, education and children’s initiatives that inspire and grow individual and community potential. We give priority to prevention and early intervention initiatives.
The values of the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation are based on a deep-rooted sense of responsibility to its community and a belief that it is better to work in partnership than in isolation.
We invite organizations to read about what we fund and how to apply. We invite everyone else to read and learn about the impressive work resulting from the Foundation’s grants.
The Lyle S. Hallman Foundation is a member of Philanthropic Foundations Canada (PFC), and as part of its membership adheres to the PFC values and ethical principles.
