Highland Capital Management Makes $1 Million ‘Matching Pledge’ For ‘The Family Place’ Through The ‘Highland Dallas Foundation’
Yes, Highland Capital Management is a well established and successful financial investment institution; but there is also the Highland Dallas Foundation, a substantial non-profit organization, that James Dondero and Highland Capital Management have a strong affiliation with.
James Dondero, who is a Certified Management Accountant and professionally recognized as a Chartered Financial Analyst as well as being the president of Highland Capital Management, showed the impressive support that Highland Capital Management gives to the Highland Dallas Foundation.
At an award function given by ‘The Family Place,’ a charitable institution that focuses on all of the aspects of family violence especially within the Dallas area, James Dondero stated that for their ‘Legacy Campaign’ that The Family Place is conducting to raise funds the Highland Capital Management group would match all donations at a rate of 50 cents for each dollar donated for the next six months up to the amount of $1 million dollars.
To really jump start this campaign it was revealed that the official start date was October 4th and when word got out that of this matching pledge the ‘Legacy Campaign’ got a massive jump start with donations of $200,000 and immediately received another $100,000 based on the matching pledge.
Along with the approval and confirmation of the regulatory committees in the field of finance earned by James Dondero, a list of chairman positions he holds includes: American Banknote, Cornerstone Healthcare and MGM Studios. His ability to understand risk management is combined with his experience in several unrelated industries. His ability to contribute valuable input in areas that would be considered outside of his expertise seems obvious with the diversity of the companies mentioned above.
James Dondero was also one of the founders of Highland Capital Management in 1993; and as of October of 2016 they currently have assets of 16 billion dollars.
