People helping others is just the most important thing that happens on planet Earth, no matter what form it takes or where it happens. An excellent example of this truth is the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Institution (of the same name) receiving generous support and continued assistance for its endeavors from Highland Capital Management and other businesses.
Perhaps, the best part about the funding and support raised toward this institution is where the help goes to and how it changes the local community. The details are simple, sweet and easy to explain. However, the end results and fruits the yielded are definitely significant. As for its contributions, Highland Capital Management is gifting the center with 10 million dollars to continue the work done through the program Engage at Bush Center.
But, it’s not alone in this endeavor, as the Boeing Corp also gives a sizable amount of money. It’s actually the same amount of money resulting in 10 million dollars. However, the purpose for the Boeing Corp donation is to assist post 9/11 veterans. This is through the Military Service Initiative offered at the center. Jim Dondero and Highland Capital Management have been with the George W. Bush Presidential Center since its beginning and is a founding benefactor.

Dondero is very vocal and clear about his excitement and support of the programs and initiatives that the center offers and continues to pledge his eternal loyalty to this establishment. It’s just very good for the local community and there are more than just programs and initiatives for veterans that go on in the learning half of the campus. For example, there are Q and A’s with the son of late supreme justice Scalia and think tanks over constitutional law. It’s all about supporting veterans, especially combat veterans, and the families that love them and rely on their support.
It is this precise reason why Boeing is continually putting funds into the George W. Bush Presidential Center to help veterans readjust to a life outside of the combat field. They are also committed to hiring highly trained professionals who understand the detail-oriented demands of the Aerospace industry. This is why Boeing is deeply entrenched in the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Institute. So, Boeing puts their money where their mouth is, with 15 million dollars in grants for programs that focus on everything from mathematics to technology and the aerospace industry. But, the help does not stop there as these funds also go towards civic institutions and the improvement of communities in general.
