The Big Shoulders Fund has been in existence for 30 years providing support for inner-city Catholic schools located in Chicago’s most underserved communities. The Big Shoulders Fund raises $18-20 million annually and has a $45 million endowment to support 77 schools (64 elementary and 13 high schools) serving 20,000 students – 80% minority and 66% living in poverty. Annual investments are focused on scholarships and student enrichment, operational management, academic and professional development programs, leadership development, and an adopt-a-school program. Mr. Hale is also involved with numerous professional and philanthropic organizations. He was a fellow in the Leadership Greater Chicago program and an inaugural member of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs’ Emerging Leaders Program. Currently, Mr. Hale serves on the Executive Committee of the School Board for the Archdiocese of Chicago, the Forums Committee of the Economic Club of Chicago, the Board of Directors of The Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago, the Board of Directors of Amerigo, and the Next Generation Ad Hoc Committee of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. He is a member of The Chicago Club, the Chicago Commonwealth Club, and of Vistage International. In 2010, Mr. Hale was recognized by Crain’s Chicago Business Journal as one of Chicago’s “40 Under 40.” Previously, Mr. Hale was Director of Development / Public Relations and a member of the management team at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago, Illinois. The model that Cristo Rey was founded on has since been replicated in other schools across the country. Prior to that, he worked for The Hale Group, Ltd., a strategic management consulting firm. After graduating from Marquette University, Mr. Hale entered the Jesuit Volunteer International program and spent two years as a volunteer educator in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Mr. Hale resides in Chicago with his wife and their two sons.
