Highland Capital Management is one of the most innovator investment companies in the world right now thanks to the creative ways that CEO and founder James Dondero approaches his work. For years Highland Capital Management has been making waves in various industries ranging from healthcare to real estate and pretty much everything in between. Now Dondero and the rest of Highland Capital Management are making the news for something even greater: their support of The Family Place. The Family Place is a nonprofit that works to help address domestic violence within families. Dondero and Highland Capital are willing to match anyone up to 50% on donations, reaching all the way to $1 million dollars.
The Family Place Legacy Campaign has been focused on addressing family violence in the state of Texas for decades now. While The Family Place doesn’t get the headlines that it deserves as a dedicated non profit, residents of Texas fully recognize just how important their work is. the foundation was established in 1978 and since then they’ve been there to counsel nearly 225,000 clients over the years. During that time The Family Place has also provided shelter to 22,000 women and children as well as men who have all been directly affected by the dangers present in family violence.
Highland Capital’s gracious grant is looking to react to a request from the Mayor of Dallas, Mike Rawlings. Mike Rawlings partnered up with David Brown, the Dallas Police Chief, in order to call for more help from within the community to address the issue of domestic violence within the community. Dondero wasn’t quiet about making his announcement of the $1 million donation grant by saying, “The civic community in Dallas gets things done.” Dondero went on to say, “We at Highland capital Management were impressed by the way the Family Place, through avid philanthropic support, took this concept from inception to the final stage of this campaign in just a year.”
With James Dondero heading Highland Capital and The Family Place fully embracing the grant it looks like many people will receive the lifesaving help that they desperately need.

Eva Moskowitz has spent her entire career in the educational industry. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her bachelor’s degree, and has a Ph.D. in American History that she earned at John Hopkins University. She is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Success Academy Charter Schools in New York City.
It was in 1989 that Eva Moskowitz established her professional career, serving at the University of Virginia as a Visting Professor who specialized in communications and mass culture. Since that time she has worked as an assistant professor at both Vanderbilt University and the City University of New York. In 1996 she joined Columbia University as the Chair of the Faculty Seminar in American Studies.
In 1998. Eva Moskowitz entered the private world when she joined Prep for Prep as both the Director of Public Affairs and as a civics teacher. She decided to run for office in 1999 and was elected as a New York City Councilmember. She was the Education Committee Chair on the city’s council and was a strong advocate of charter schools and other private options to the public schools in the city.
After leaving government, she established Success Academy Charter Schools in 2006. She has said that even the best public schools are performing poorly when compared to their international counterparts. While most people know that the schools primarily teaching children that come from low-income households are poor, Eva Moskowitz says that even the schools teaching children coming from wealthy families are exposed to schools that are failing their missions.
At the Success Academy, Moskowitz has created a model of teaching students that is free of the type of overwhelming bureaucracy that exists in public schools. She is also against the types of contracts that teachers receive which makes it all but impossible to get rid of bad teachers. She holds administrators, teachers, and students accountable in regards to high expectations and standards. This has led to students who perform far higher on standardized tests than at any of the public school options in New York City.
Avaaz is an advocacy group that also raises funds and hosts petitions for many causes. Founded in 2007 they mainly focus their efforts on climate issues, corruption, animal and human rights. Unlike previous international groups they maintain a large base of members and its staff provide summarized arguments for supporting several different causes in an easy to understand way. They are dedicated to their members and do a yearly survey to choose their top initiatives and among those this year are Save the Seas and Breaking Monsanto’s Grip, summarized below.
In the past year Avaaz and their members have made great strides towards their goal of thwarting Monsanto. They submitted the petition against glyphosate (Roundup) with over two million signatures to EU representatives. Glyphosate has been linked to cancer in recent UN studies, and Monsanto is in hot water legally in the US with a massive class action suit. In the EU it required a renewal of its license to be sold to non professionals- and Avaaz along with members contacting their own governments it was a successful pursuit with their license denied to the joy of many.
With the force of Avaaz they’ve made strides towards their Saving the Seas Initiative starting in the UK in 2010. With a massive effort from Avaaz, the UK set aside a large amount of protected marine zones throughout its territories. Many experts in marine biology believe that this in addition to reducing waste dumped in the ocean. The Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument which is a marine reserve that doubled the amount of protected ocean world wide was approved just a few years later after another monumental effort by members. Just last year they had caught wind of another possible marine reserve off the coast of Hawaii. Another large rallying cry coordinated by Avaaz and they’ve added yet another marine reserve to their goal: to have 30% of our oceans protected by 2030.
