North Texas residents are set to receive numerous benefits courtesy of a partnership between Dallas Foundation and Highland Capital Management. The latter is a highly successful investment firm with an excellent reputation. The firm is a major donor to charitable events in an effort to improve the livelihoods of North Texas communities.
In an effort to meet its $ 3 million budget, the company sought a reliable partner with similar interests. Dallas Foundation emerged as the most suitable partner in this venture courtesy of its history in giving back to the local communities. The company’s CEO, Mary Jalonick, reiterated the firm’s commitment to philanthropic contributions and donor services.
Formation of Highland Dallas Foundation
The Dallas Foundation had made significant achievements in nonprofit communities. In addition, they have gained an excellent reputation based on positive reviews from community members. The two CEOs created a comprehensive framework that focused on providing an effective and bold strategy for the betterment of local residents. The formation of the Highland Dallas Foundation Inc. is a product of collaborative discussions between the two CEOs. The new enterprise is aimed at joining efforts in successfully catering for the needs of the community.
James combined his exquisite entrepreneurial skills and charitable strategy to attract grants in his cause. Such financial incentives are crucial in providing a regular flow of funds on a long term basis. The Dallas Foundation recently acquired the services of Linda Owen in an effort to promote sustainability. A former CEO and President of the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation, Miss Owen brings invaluable expertise and experience to the table. She is tasked with implementing Dondero’s vision and attracting like-minded partners to the initiative.
