Highland Capital Management Gives Big Boost to Bush Center:More speakers and events will be coming to the George W. Bush Presidential Center thanks to a generous donation by Highland Capital Management. The Dallas based wealth management firm contributed a $10 million endowment gift for the “Engage at the Bush Center” program.

The first event to take place thanks to Highland’s new partnership with the Bush Center is set for February 5th, 2018. This two part series features Christopher Scalia, son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Christopher Scalia’s book, Scalia Speaks: Reflections on Law, Faith, and Life Well Lived., is a collection of his father’s favorite speeches. The second part of the program features a discussion of the current media landscape and what President James Madison, who drafted the Constitution, might have thought about it. The participants in the discussion include Jeffrey Rosen, the president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, social media researcher Amy Mitchell, and Mike Wilson, Editor of The Dallas Morning News.
The Engage series at the Bush Center began back in 2015. Sellout crowds have heard former U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, and former CIA and NSA Director General Michael Hayden in past programs.
This is not the first time Highland Capital Management and its CEO, James Dondero, have given financial aid to the Bush Center. They helped fund the development of the center back in 2012, and have made more than $5 million in contributions since its opening in 2013. Highland Capital is also demonstrating its commitment to the Engage series and the Bush Presidential Center by having Dondero sit on the executive advisory council of the center, along with center CEO Kenneth Hersh.

Texas is home to U.S. Money Reserve, so the company leaped into action following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The severe storm made landfall in mid-August and caused as much as $180 billion in damages to Houston and the Gulf of Mexico region in general. With rainfall of as much as 65 inches in some areas over a four-day period, catastrophic flooding resulted and thousands of Texans lost their homes and all of their possessions. Most tragically, at least 82 people dies as a result of the hurricane. Learn more: http://www.manta.com/c/mml8pv9/u-s-money-reserve-in
Austin, Texas-based U.S. Money Reserve responded with a matching donation plan to contribute up to $100,000 during the entire month of September. The contribution was earmarked for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund established by the non-profit organization Austin Disaster Relief Network, or ADRN. The U.S. Money Reserve contribution, which matched other contributors on a dollar-for-dollar basis, helped to fund a range of critical services, including emergency housing, transportation, home repair and immediate cash assistance. The company knew that the financial support had to be not only generous but quickly forthcoming in order to meet extensive and urgent need. Storm victims were in desperate want of clean water, hygiene products and medicine before their long-term needs could even start to be addressed.
U.S. Money Reserve felt the importance of being a part of this recovery effort out of loyalty to its roots. The company began operation in Austin and has offices in additional cities in the state. Furthermore, some U.S. Money Reserve staff and family members and many of the company’s customers were adversely affected by the hurricane. The partnership with ADRN was quickly established so that relief efforts could begin as soon after the storm as possible.
