Debra Hall

Grants Manager

At the Trust

My work at the Trust has been enriched by watching communities come together to enhance the lives of others. As grants manager, I implement grant processes, establish standards, maintain deadlines, and ensure compliance with IRS regulations. My great grandfather worked as foreman of Ms. Kate’s Tanglewood Estate and took care of her house and land for many years. He would be so proud of what her legacy has accomplished.

My Proudest Accomplishment

Having an eye for detail and being able to think through issues and develop leadership skills along the way, even when it’s outside my comfort zone.

When the Day is Done

In the evenings I come home to my husband Allen, our four children—Kaden, Kadie, Aaliyah, and Carmella—three dogs, and a cat. On Sunday and Wednesday evening you will find me at church, most likely in the nursery. Children’s ministry is a passion of mine. In the summer, my favorite place to be is at the beach.
