James Dondero donates to The Family Place
The world of finance has always depended on innovators to push the market forward. The right innovators can bring new products to the market and think up new ways to make money for their investors. Since 1990, James Dondero has been a leading innovator throughout the industry.
He founded Highland Capital Management in the early nineties, and the firm has managed to change the financial world. Highland Capital helped create the Collateralized Loan Obligation and numerous award-winning hedge funds, keeping the company on the map. James is proud of his accomplishments, but he recognizes that others played a huge role in his success.
Highland has called Dallas home since the early nineties. The city has provided Highland with high profile talent and a great location. James Dandero is happy to call Dallas home, but now he is ready to give back to the community. James has built a powerful and influential charitable giving division within Highland Capital.
Highland Capital has quickly become one of the largest donors within Dallas. The firm gives more than $3 million each year. James primarily focuses on giving to education, healthcare, and veterans’ issues, while also giving to major museums like the Perot Museum and the Bush presidential library.
James is proud of Highland’s charitable giving, but he is always looking for a new cause to give to. Recently, James noticed that the Family Place, an influential domestic violence shelter located in the heart of Dallas, was trying to raise money for a new shelter. James quickly pledged a $1 million challenge grant to the charity.
Highland will match every donation to The Family Place all the way up to $1 million. James is extremely proud of his donation, but he really wants to live in a world where domestic violence is no longer an issue.
The Family Place is a vital domestic violence shelter located in Dallas, and Highland Capital hopes to see this philanthropy grow for years to come. James hopes to keep donating to this wonderful cause and to see the end of domestic violence within his lifetime. James Dondero is a wonderful philanthropist.
