In 1993, James Dondero and Mark Okada made their way to the financial heart of Dallas, Texas and opened up their own investment company, Highland Capital Management. The success of the brand was speedy and took most by surprise despite the impressive track records of both the founders of the financial brand. What few could have expected was the way James Dondero embraced life in Houston and became a major part of the philanthropic community of Texas.

It is common for the top philanthropists in the world to write large checks for their favorite charities and not spend a large amount of time assisting with any good causes on the ground. James Dondero takes a completely different approach to philanthropy as he has become a hands-on donor who has been involved with many of the most successful causes in Dallas’s recent history. A good example of the success of Dondero has been the huge amount of work done by the investment specialist at the Dallas Zoo where he has become one of the most popular and important donors to a range of different areas.

It is safe to say James Dondero is one of the leading members of the Dallas community and believes it is his responsibility to ensure the artistic and educational future of the Texan city is secure. For James Dondero, the issue of how best to bring philanthropic success to the city has been to work on a range of ventures in the arts, such as his continued support of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Outside of the arts, James Dondero and Highland Capital Management look for good causes that can make a difference in the lives of thousands of people. For example, James Dondero believes not-for-profit groups, such as The Family PLace providing a safe location for victims of domestic abuse are the kind of causes the group should be looking to work with.
