Quality education is so important. Unfortunately, the opportunity for equal education is not afforded to all children. Factors like finances, residential location and transportation often influence the options available to families for education. The opportunities for education should be unrestricted, giving all children the opportunity to learn without influence from outside factors.
James Dondero, co-founder, and president of Highland Capital Management, L.P., has dedicated his life and career to improving the educational opportunities for families in and around Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. After graduating from the University of Virginia with honors, he set his sights on entrepreneurship. He quickly established himself in the world of healthcare and became the Chairman of Cornerstone Healthcare, CCS Medical, and Nexbank.
As both a successful businessman and passionate philanthropist, James Dondero has invested in far more than just the financial arena. Through financial donations, community action and volunteer work, James Dondero and the team at Highland Capital Management continue to serve their communities and improve the options for quality education.
Aside from their countless contributions to education in their community, James Dondero and Highland Capital also have an interest in improving healthcare and veteran’s affairs. Highland contributes more than $3 million annually to charitable organizations. Some of these beneficiaries include the Center for Brain Health and The American Heart Association. With their shared interest in philanthropy and community improvement, the team at Highland Capital Management, under the leadership of James Dondero have created a dedicated network of passionate philanthropists who are ready to make a change.
