About HCI

The Halff Community Initiative (HCI) began in 2017 as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. Halff’s employees run HCI, which is designed to give back to the communities where we live and work. Helping people and changing lives is the mission of HCI.

Following in the footsteps of Dr. Halff and inspired by his charitable nature, HCI was formed with the purpose of giving back directly to the communities we serve, focusing on engagement through personal time and monetary commitments to important causes while giving employees the freedom of choice.

HCI is funded by employee contributions and company donations. The HCI Steering Committee, comprising nine employees, evaluates and determines potential volunteer and donation opportunities

Halff employees have been generous and supportive of community initiatives throughout the years by giving monetary donations and personal time to volunteer. Through these donations, we’ve built a strong, connected community where each investment makes a huge difference.


We’re all better together. Follow us to stay connected with the HCI community!
