Highland Capital Management collaborates with the Dallas Foundation to reform the lifestyles of Texas communities. James Dondero who is the co-founder and the president of the Highland Capital Management agreed to partner with Mary Jalonick. Mary is the president and chief executive officer of The Dallas Foundation and works hand in hand with her team of philanthropic and donor service experts.
Highland Capital Management was seeking a partner to help manage $ 3 million which was meant for annual philanthropic budget and as a result, the search settled on the Dallas Foundation.
Jim clearly states that they selected the Dallas Foundation since it is an organization with an excellent reputation and is deeply incorporated with the Northern Texas affairs. The company also has a proven history of incredible achievements in the nonprofit community.
The two leaders classified primary strategies for charitable giving events that would be significant and crucial to the Texas community. As a result of the Highland, Dallas Foundation Inc. was formed as a supporting organization of the Dallas Foundation. The newly formed group is expected to be bold and aspirational.
James has been a supporter of various projects in Dallas including education and healthcare initiatives. Hence working with the Dallas Foundation gives him a chance to expand his philanthropic engagements at different civic organizations including the Dallas Zoo among others.
Jim and the Dallas Foundation hired Linda Owen who exclusively works on Highland Dallas Foundation Inc. programs. Linda Owen formerly served as the president and chief executive officer at Woodall Rogers Park Foundation Inc. Linda’s grindstone is to help connect Jim’s vision with nonprofit partners to establish a quality lifestyle for Texas residents.
