WCEF K-12 Business Partner Newsletter
April 2017

In Walnut Creek, we are fortunate to have a community  that believes in the importance of education and that comes together to support our top-ranked schools. When choosing where to shop in Walnut Creek, please consider these businesses' contributions to our community and show them your gratitude with your patronage!

Featured Partner: Hall Equities Group

Hall Equities Group is a locally owned business, active in real estate investment, development, and property management here in the immediate area, as well as in other markets around the country. Originating as a residential real estate brokerage in Lafayette in 1962, the company is now headquartered in Walnut Creek and is one of the largest local commercial property owners operating in the city. Hall Equities Group is a longtime supporter of the community and committed to the long-term success of the region.
Mark Hall, the President and CEO of Hall Equities Group explains his commitment to the community and to the Walnut Creek Education Foundation this way: "I grew up here. I believe in our community and want to see it thrive. An important element of this is making opportunities available to young people, which is what the Walnut Creek Education Foundation does so well. My philosophy on education closely aligns with my philosophy on business. I believe in pushing boundaries and forging new pathways, and in the importance of perpetual learning and experimentation. Our local community stands to lose so much if our young people lack academic fundamentals or the opportunity to explore beyond the basics; yet Federal and State funding for schools only goes so far. WCEF fills an important gap in making sure that every student gets the core education they need, as well as the extra enrichment opportunities that will help them to soar. We are pleased to make this contribution and to continue our history of support for the WCEF."
