Just after Memorial Day weekend the co-founder and CEO of Highland Capital, James Dondero, took a break from managing their extensive pool of hedge funds and CLOs, Collateralized Loan Obligations to announce a new member of the team, Linda Owen. With more than 3 million dollars per year that James Dondero and the team at Highland Capital sets aside for charity, the best philanthropist in the greater Dallas Area is best suited for the task of leading the way for giving back to the community.
So much success has been had by Highland Capitals as it invests in the global market of credit products and innovates its own credit product loan investment and debt account assets. The yield has been long term and phenomenal. Success must be shared, so James Dondero stated that, “Our contributions make the greatest impact in our community and the causes we support.” He is so pleased to have Linda Owen a the helm of the giving management arm of Highland Capital that he described her as, “proven.” with a “track record of building effective public-private partnerships.” Her ability to visualize what the goals in giving are at Highland will fit right in. He also stated that her talents will “make a tangible impact on our community.”
So Dallas is in great shape because of these annual gifts from the team at Highland Capital and The Dallas Foundation, where Linda Owens is President of it charitable grant giving and funding projects. Some of the more high profile recipients of these funds are presidential libraries such as the George W. Bush. Local health science research funding has been granted to the Center for Brain Health. To keep all members of the Dallas community heart healthy, funding is also being granted to the American Heart Association. Keeping the young minds engaged in learning and growing in power through knowledge, the Uplift Education fund has also been chosen for giving. There are many others that will receive financial gifts as well.
