Highland Capital Management recently announced its continual support of the George W. Bush Presidential Center. One of the ways Highland is doing this is through an endowment. The endowment, which is $10 million, is providing the funding the Bush Center needs to provide new and educational programs to the public.
Highland is also the sponsor that is presenting a new Bush Center programming series.

He also shares that Highland’s large endowment to the center is a huge investment in the future of the Bush Center, and that the center is very grateful to Dondero for his commitment to boosting the efforts of the Bush Center.
Over the years, Highland Capital Management has contributed over $5 million to the Bush Center. The company is also part of the Founding Benefactors that have helped to fund Bush Center facility development. Dondero shares that Highland is impressed by the influence that the Bush Center has all across the country and in the Dallas community, and says that Highland is proud to be part of the Bush Center’s efforts.
The endowment from Highland will allow the Bush Center to sponsor several events that will be held through the Engage series. This includes the Highland Capital Lecture, which occurs every year, and Dondero is also set to become part of Hersh’s Executive Advisory Council. The first event in the series is scheduled for February 5. Those who want to attend can visit www.bushcenter.org for more information, and admission is free. Read this article at Dallas News.
