Simple Solutions

How can we simplify your charitable giving?

Charitable giving can be an art form into itself. Craig Hall, founder of the Hall Group and fund holder at Communities Foundation of Texas, structured a complex donation of two premium restaurant spaces in the Dallas Arts District to his fund at CFT.

An avid supporter of the arts, he wanted the proceeds to be used to help organizations in the area, such as the Dallas Opera, to flourish. Chef Stephen Pyles, who runs Flora Street Café in one of the spaces, was thrilled: “Hall’s donation of the space we are leasing is philanthropy at a level most of us only dream of.”

The donation of real estate is a prime example of Craig Hall living his own philosophy. As he says, “I believe businesses should do well and do good too.”
