The power of collective thinking. The impact of collective doing.

How can we elevate the lives of the most vulnerable among us? Alone, it’s challenging. Together, it’s transformational.

The Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation is a collaborative charitable resource that embraces the entrepreneurial spirit in like-minded philanthropists and non-profits to propel real social change.

One voice may have power, but many voices have a collective strength that can transform talk into dialogue and energy into endeavor.

We prefer to invest our time and talent to collaborate with our network of resources to solve issues rather than support agencies. It’s the same no-nonsense, “Rubber-meets-the-road” mentality that created Discount Tire, and the purpose that drives the Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation. We believe “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness,” as Eleanor Roosevelt once said, and we work to illuminate issues of social justice in thoughtful and innovative ways.
