Highland Capital Management (HCM) has a very capable President and Co-Founder in James Dondero. With more than 30 years of experience in the equity and credit markets, HCM is in proficient hands with Mr. Dondero.

In January of 1990 James Dondero and his founding partner Mark Okada created a joint venture with Protective Life Insurance Corporation. Over the years this evolved into Highland Capital Management L.P. firm based in Dallas.

According to Dallas Links, as of Oct. 7, 2016 Dondero announced that HCM has donated a million dollar challenge grant to help out the Dallas group that supports victims of family violence, The Family Place. This will help raise the last $2.8 million for the Legacy Campaign.

This news came at the same time as The Family Place’s 21st Annual Texas Trailblazer Awards Luncheon. Highland Dallas Foundation, Inc. is the philanthropic arm of HCM and they are the ones who administered the grant. They will match 50% of any money raised for the capital campaign from now until April 4, 2017.

Since the original announcement in October, The Family Place has raised $200,000 for the Legacy Campaign. According to Highland’s grant that amount will be matched by $100,000. The fundraising goal is $16.5 million and with the challenge grant in effect, they should reach that goal.

How did this all come about? Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings along with Dallas Police Chief David Brown issued a call to action to help The Family Place raise the funds they need. They will be better able to provide lifesaving shelter and life-changing services to family violence victims.

This Legacy Campaign will help with the building of a new Central Dallas Counseling Center for victims of family violence. The new center will have a dental and medical clinic, 13 emergency shelter bedrooms, multiple counseling rooms, a centralized hotline/call center, and job-training spaces.
