Highland Capital Management has been one of our favorite investment firms to keep tabs on over the years. The reason? James Dondero, the founder and CEO, has been one of the most innovative and exciting fund managers that we can think of. Dondero’s work with Highland Capital bears paying attention to, but his attention to philanthropic endeavors might be even more important. James Dondero and the team at Highland Capital have reached out to partner with The Family Place, a Dallas based domestic violence foundation that focuses on providing shelter, therapy, and aid to those that are suffering from family related violence. Highland Capital is awarding a $1 million grant to those victims of family violence in that they will match any donations at 50% their value, up to a total of $1 million.
Family violence is often the ugly shadow that dogs communities and Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings definitely wanted to have it addressed within his community. Rawlings and the Dallas Police Chief, David Brown, both made a call for their own community to reach out and make a difference with domestic violence in the city. So the community responded back by going to the The Family Place where donations can directly change the way that a person responds to family related violence. The Family Place’s current CEO, Paige Fink, says “For anyone consider this effort to provide lifesaving shelter and life changing services to family violence victims, this is a tremendous opportunity to multiply the impact of their gift.”
James Dondero reached out to the Highland Dallas Foundation in order to get this philanthropy off of the ground. The Highland Dallas Foundation operates as the philanthropic arm of the entire fund. Dondero says, “The civic community in Dallas gets things done. We at Highland Capital Management were impressed by the way the Family Place, through avid philanthropic support, took this concept from inception to the final stage of this campaign in just a year.” Dondero and the Highland Capital team will continue to support philanthropic endeavors throughout their community, making a change and lending a hand where possible.
