Highland Capital Management Donates $1 Million Grant to The Family Place

James Dondero, the co-owner, and chief executive officer of Highland Capital Management announced that they had given $1 million to support Legacy Campaign geared towards supporting victims of family violence. The challenge grant is part of the remaining $2.8 million required to support The Family Place’s campaign scheduled in the next six months. Mr. Dondero made the announcement during an annual trailblazer event held at Hilton Anatole in Dallas.

According to Mr. Dondero, the grant would be administered through HCM’s philanthropic arm, Highland Dallas Foundation. The grant will match up to $1 million of any funds generated for the Legacy Campain until April 2017. Since James Dondero’s announcement on October 4th, the domestic violence center has raised $200,000 towards its campaign.

The Family Place will match the additional funds with Highland’s donation. With $2.8 deficit to raise the required $16.5 campaign’s target, Highland’s grant will be instrumental in the success of The Family Place’s campaign. According to Mr. James Dondero, the donation answers the Dallas administration’s call to address life-threatening issues.

Paige Flink, The Family Place’s chief executive officer, says that Legacy Campaign is an opportunity to extend humanitarian services to victims of domestic violence. The campaign supports the establishment of a counseling center for domestic violence victims.  Learn more about James Dondero: https://www.nexbank.com/james-dondero.htm

Ann Moody Place will serve over 2,000 domestic violence victims annually since The Family Place’s facility operates at capacity. Besides, it has a facility that shelters pets for those that fear to leave their pets behind.
