James Dondero wants to use his talents to help clients achieve their financial goals. As co-founder and CEO of Highland Capital Management, “Jim” oversees the $17 billion in investment capital. Many top clients trust putting their funds into the hands of Highland’s team because the firm has a many-year track record of success. Persons seeking big profits aren’t the only entities interested in financial support from Dondero and Highland. Nonprofits in the Dallas area benefit from assistance provided from the two.
Of course, a nonprofit doesn’t want the same help that a client of the investment services does. James Dondero and Highland Capital Management offer support to Dallas nonprofits, not as a means of generating revenue, but to give something back to the community. Several top nonprofits in the region, ones related to medical, educational, the arts, and more, benefit from the financial assistance. There is even a special grant intended to help people get back on their feet. Overall, the list of grants and philanthropic support Jim Dondero and Highland provide is impressive. The sheer volume of support goes beyond what many other enterprises around the country offer to their preferred causes and nonprofits.
The Dallas Symphony and the Dallas Museum of Art represent two of the organizations supported by James Dondero and Highland Capital Management. Both cultural entities must deal with tremendous costs the average person could never imagine. Think about the insurance premiums and security costs the museum incurs. And then there are the advertising and venue rentals the symphony pays. The funding delivered to them through James Dondero’s work is undoubtedly well appreciated. Likely, this appreciation is felt across the board among the many nonprofits supported.
The contributions made to these nonprofits help the organizations provide something of immense value in Dallas. For this reason and more, the work of James Dondero and his staff should never be overlooked.
