The DeVos are a famous family ion the United States. Betsy and Dick DeVos are people who have been to senior positions of leadership in both the political and business circles. Betsy DeVos is the wife of businessman Dick DeVos. The family have been behind some of the most successful charities, philanthropies and nonprofit organizations. They are aligned as conservative founders of these initiatives. The conservatives initiatives that thy have founded are mainly in the field of Christian nonprofits and educational reforms in the country. Betsy and Dick DeVos have a foundation known as Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. This is a foundation that thy have used to give millions of dollars to various causes that they support. While the family is known to many people for their political engagements, they have another face of them that is dedicated to causes that matter to the society. They are known to many especially for political funding to the Republican Party. Dick has been a republican candidate for the position of the Michigan governor. The cornerstone of their giving is however is in support of the non-profit sector.
It is estimated that the DeVos have contributed over $1.3 billion towards the nonprofit causes. This is a huge amount of money. I can concur that the initiative that this family has taken in support of the society is incredibly great. Not many wealthy people take time to contribute to causes that are intended to change the society. The money they have contributed especially in the education sector have changed the lives of thousands of school going children. The Dick and Betsy Family Foundation is one of the biggest in the United States. It is ranked number 24 of the biggest givers in the country. The family foundation have been running for many years. The giving tradition is now being instilled in the two children in the family. They are being prepared to take the mantle of giving from their parents. The children have been contributing to a number of initiatives in the country.
The DeVos family is passionate about two things. There is their conservative political leaning and there is their Christian beliefs. This has been demonstrated by the size of monetary contributions that the group have contributed to these two causes. Some of the groups that have benefited from the contributions of the DeVos are the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy. This is group that have received over $750000. The foundation have also been sponsoring the education of numerous students who are supportive of conservative views ion various colleges all over the United States.
Betsy DeVos have been particularly supportive of educational reforms in the country. He has been supporting two schools in Michigan. She contributes over $20000 very year to support the schools. Most of the money that is provided goes into support of education through scholarships. These are scholarship that are given to children from low income families. These are families that cannot afford to pay quality education for their children in good schools.
The DeVos family gives me hope as an American that the future if the country is safe with such kind of people who are dedicated to to helping others.
