Financial investment companies can be handled in a very different way than the way that Jim Dondero handled his. His story is one of success and philanthropic success. The ability to create funding through grants for those new investors through helping the community is a story that must be shared. It’s truly inspirational.
Jim Dondero started what has now become a foundation for those in need in the Dallas, Texas area. He was the co-founder of Highland Capital Management and grew what started as a simple dream into a place for people to get grants and also help others by investing. His journey was amazing. He completely blew away those in the business in Dallas.
Fast forward some time later. Dondero found a kindred spirit for the organization. Her name was Linda Owen and her talents were well known in the area for philanthropic non-profit fundraising. North Texas non-profits all know who she is and what she does. The addition of her to the foundation has been a profitable change.
After that, Mary Jalonick was added to the team as well to specifically handle the donations. She had been doing this in the North Texas area for years taking it from a company to a real foundation for those people in need in the area. Her philanthropic abilities have truly made this a group effort for the team. She brought to the foundation what she had been doing for other companies for years.
That team worked together to build the foundation to what it is today. They have begun to offer the help that the local community needs to create more investors. They raised more investors from the community that would have missed out on the abilities of the people that they have helped since coming together as a team.
This type of work, which Jim Dondero began in the Dallas area, can be done in any place of the country. Investors help the upcoming investors as the community grows financially. It’s a win-win for everyone. His belief system in doing things with a God-Centered business model of helping other, which has become a complete success.
