Dallas has some great locations for victims of domestic violence to go so that they can get away from the trauma while taking care of other family members who are also caught in the crossfire. One of those is The Family Place which worked hard recently to meet their capital goals. Thankfully, James Dondero has brought in his company Highland Capital Management to help them meet the goals outlined by awarding a cool $1 million towards that end.

 

As president James Dondero always holds such causes dear to his heart and looks to help out the surrounding city and community as much as possible. In fact, his company has a section called the Highland Dallas Foundation which is setup to work with philanthropic motives. The only thing which The Family Place has to do is raise a similar amount since Highland is going to be donating at a 50% match rate. That should not be much of a problem for the domestic violence soldiers since they have already raised so much towards their $16.5 million fundraising goal.

 

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Dallas Police Chief David Brown have recently sent out calls to action because of the myriad of life-threatening issues that their city is facing. They understand that it is going to take everyone making an effort in order to ease the bleeding, and thankfully there are a number of like-minded individuals in management positions which allow them to make charitable decisions like James Dondero did through this grant. At the same time, the business leaders of the future can leverage the firm’s Tower Scholars program.

 

H may have his hands full with a number of great things happening at the company as well. There are things like the new Korean health care fund which has Highland Capital Management’s fund managers in Asia looking for deals on the ground. There have already been so many commitments there, and South Korea’s National Pension Service (NPS) serves as the anchor investor which should have a lot of people interested. A lot has changed since the early 1990’s when Dondero co-founded his firm, and so many initiatives continue to benefit Dallas.
