One of the most giving and generous families that I have researched in the United States is the DeVos family, a family that is not only known for founding Amway Corporation, but a family that is also known for giving billions of dollars to charitable organizations across the country. The DeVos family is a prominent family in the Grand Rapids region in Michigan and is constantly dedicated to giving back to the community. The DeVos family is a strong believer in giving money to improve wealth within the community rather than keeping it close and never using it. As philanthropists, the DeVos family is particularly keen to give money to artistic charities, religious charities, as well as charities that conduct educational reforms.
Following in the path of his family is Dick DeVos, a businessman as well as a dedicated philanthropist who also believes that wealth should be spread across the community. Dick DeVos and his wife, Betsy are reforms in all senses. In recent news, Betsy DeVos’ speech at Calvin College showed that she is a political reformer and has unmatched knowledge of the political world. As a reformer, Mrs. DeVos is constantly looking to give new ideas to social reforms across the United States. Mrs. DeVos is dedicated to finding innovative solutions to solve even the most complex social issues that are faced everyday.
Social issues such as educational reforms are very important to Betsy DeVos and her husband. Betsy DeVos is a believer in education and the fact that the only way to promote wealth within a community is to encourage a high quality and upper level of education. Betsy DeVos has recently applauded many education initiatives as education choice is higher than ever which means children now choose to receive an education and are not just forced to receive one. As a philanthropist, Mrs. DeVos truly believes that education is the key to wipe away barriers and to accept others who come from different cultures.
The DeVos family is a proud family that is currently the owner as well as the founder of Amway Corporation, a network sales company that has expanded to now be international. With a multi-billion dollar corporation, the DeVos family has looked for new ways to incorporate their wealth into different communities across the United States. The solution is to give back to many philanthropic organizations and to all for the people to grow the wealth within the community.
