The Craig and Kathryn Hall Foundation embodies the shared values of its two founders, Craig Hall and Ambassador Kathryn Walt Hall. Starting early in their lives, both were deeply committed to giving back to their communities through service and philanthropy. Craig worked to promote equal access to opportunity for all Americans chiefly through professional and charitable work related to entrepreneurship, including founding the North Texas chapter of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship in 2004. Kathryn contributed through her professional roles in law, government, business, and policy-making, as well as through her leadership in establishing the North Texas Food Bank, which has helped to fight food insecurity in the Dallas/Fort Worth area since 1982.


Today, the Halls continue to prioritize their philanthropic efforts, focusing on improving their communities, investing in the arts, promoting responsible business practices, and providing support to entrepreneurs underserved by traditional capital markets.
