Betsy DeVos Puts Children First

There is no point in doing work unless it involves children and helping them. Betsy DeVos knows this and tries to make sure that she can do everything possible to help children who she works with. As the secretary of education, this means that it is her goal to help every child in the United States. She wants to see them be successful and wants to make sure that she is providing them with the opportunities that they need to have a successful education system. For Betsy DeVos to do all of this, she had to make sure that she was working toward bettering herself and making sure that she knew a lot about education and how she could help children. For the sake of her career, Betsy DeVos has been a positive influencer and has been able to get a lot out of the educational sector so that she can continue providing children with all of the options that they need for success.

When Betsy DeVos first started, she saw that the public education system was not what it could be. She knew that students were missing out because of the way that the schools were set up. She wanted to see students be successful, so she worked hard to make sure that she was doing things like offering voucher programs. She used the power that she had to set up these programs and to make it possible for children to go to private school even if they couldn’t afford it.After Betsy DeVos had done all of this, she found the way to help students even more was through programs like charter schools. These are schools that are set up like private schools but they are a part of public education. There, students wouldn’t have to worry about how much their education cost.

They could combine all of the aspects of education and still get the best experience for the most affordable amount. It allowed students the chance to be able to experience all of the things that they would get in a private school.Throughout her career, Betsy DeVos has been a great philanthropist. She works hard to help other people and she knows that her help will be influential for everyone and all of the students who are in the United States. She has involved her whole family in her philanthropic efforts and that is a huge part of their lives together. She makes sure that her family members are all working toward the same goal as her to make sure that they are getting the best experience for the education that they have even if they are not able to afford the things that would normally make their education better.

Dick Devos -Finding Happiness in Giving Back

Dick and Betsy Devos are a power couple that loves giving back. In their lifetimes, they have managed to give out $139 million dollars in charitable contributions. Dick is the product of public school and strives to improve the education system the best way he can. He and his wife give out wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return. The couple contributed $11.6 million to charity in 2015. This is double the $5.3 million they have spent in campaign donations in the last five years.

 

The two belong to a high profile family dynasty that has been a key player in Republican politics for years and is led by Dick’s dad, Rich Devos, who is the Amway co-founder. Dick Devos’ father and siblings gave out close to $104 million in charitable donations in 2015. This series of actions led the family to Forbes “America’s Top Givers” list.

 

Education is a priority to Dick and Betsy. They put aside a little over $3 million specifically towards educational causes. Education accounted for 26% of their charitable donations in 2015. The foundation also awarded $357000 (or 3%) to groups which support education reform. Dick Devos has mentioned that together with his wife they feel as though the current education system does not fulfil the American dream. It is not fair that kids growing up in the “Wrong ZIP code” cannot get the chance to access the American dream and have the necessary education that will give them a shot at the dream.

 

Dick Devos was born in 1955 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Even as a child, he was always involved in the family business. He went to Northwood University and received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. He then went on to Harvard Business School and Wharton School’s Executive Programs but did not graduate.

In 2012, Dick Devos was involved in the engineering of the 2012 law. The law changed Michigan from the home of organised labor to a state where Union membership is not a condition for you to get work. Dick and his wife Betsy formed an organisation, the Dick and Betsy Devos Family Foundation. The foundation has been reported to give away $138.7 million to different causes such as health and human services, arts and culture, policy initiatives that are based on education reform and private school scholarships. The couple made the leading donation of $12.5 million to go towards the construction of the children’s hospital that was named after Helen Devos, who was Amway Co-founder’s wife. Education reform is at the heart of the Devos’ initiatives. Dick Devos started an aviation high school at Grand Rapids International Airport.
