James Dondero Is Increasing Highland Capital Management’s Charitable Contributions Through The Dallas Foundation

The last eight years have been very good years for Jim Dondero and his investment team at Highland Capital Management. James Dondero has been able to manage assets all over the world. Highland Capital Management has more than $19 billion in assets under management, and that figure will increase at the end of 2016, according to Dondero. Dondero has been able to attract investors from around the globe even though his investment firm is based in Dallas. Investors like to be where the action is, and that is in New York. Dondero has an office in Dallas as well as offices in News York, Sao Paulo, Seoul, and Singapore. Dondero is never far from the investment action. His recent purchase of Argentina debt bonds proves that. Dondero invested in Argentina in 2014, so he is no stranger to that South American country.

When he named the former president of the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation as the director of the Dallas Foundation, Highland Capital Management’s investment fund, he was in the news again. Dondero and Highland Capital are known for giving millions to local Dallas organizations. Now that Owen is involved, Dondero thinks Dallas Foundation’s charitable contributions will make a bigger impact on the community. Owen plans to expand Dallas Foundation contributions. Some of the current recipients of Highland Capital charitable contributions are the Dallas Zoo, Uplift Education, Snowball Express, the American Heart Association and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

Linda Owen has been involved in the non-profit sector in Dallas for years. Before she was president and CEO of the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation, she was in charge of the development of the Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. Owen brings experience and a stellar reputation to the Dallas Foundation, and Dondero is thrilled that she is a part of the giving arm of Highland Capital Management.
