James Dondero’s Philanthropic actions

James Dondero, currently residing in Dallas, TX is the president and co-founder of Highland Capital Management, L.P (HCM). Mr. Dondero has been a key player in the credit and equity markets for the past 30 years where he garnered experience and strategies that focus on high-yields productions using less stressful investment strategies.

James Dondero is also an active philanthropist as demonstrated in his support towards veteran’s affairs, education and public policies. He is the chairman of Cornerstone Healthcare, Nexbank, and CCS Medical; and also serves in MGM studios and American Banknote as a board member. Prior to his career at HCM, Mr. Dondero, as Managing Director, helped to raise GIC subsidiary of Protective Life from inception to its current worth of $2B in AUM within a duration of four years.

Recently, Dondero has teamed up with Linda Owen, former president of the renowned Woodall Rodgers park foundation, to analyze the best options to further expand the highland’s philanthropic activities. The strategies employed should be charitable and compassionate.

Owen will be responsible for managing the firm’s charity department in collaboration with the Dallas Foundation, responsible for administering Highland’s dedicated charity kit.

As philanthropic activities and conferences continue to expand worldwide, a professional in public-private partnerships with similar ideas as the management is required. Linda befits the description as proven by her success records in establishing effective public- private companies and partnerships.

Highland maintains an annual charity contribution of over $3 through The Dallas Foundation to sustain the charitable organizations. The local benefits as a result of these contributions include the George W. Bush Presidential museum and Library, Snowbell Express, brain Health, the Perot Museum of science, Heart Association, Uplift education among others. James together with his team of professionals provide guidance to these firms through board meetings and leadership roles.
