One of the best aspects of Dick DeVos’s life is his philanthropic pursuits. This aspect of his career is achieved with help from his wife. He has put together a foundation for receiving donations that can be put towards greater purposes such as improving the educational system. This foundation is called the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. The donations that are made go to faith based and other facilities of education so that students can have a better chance at getting the education they need to have fulfilling careers. This is something that both Dick and Betsy DeVos are passionate about.
One thing that Dick and Betsy DeVos sees is that the education system is failing a lot of students. One issue they see is that students are placed according to zip code and location. As a result, they have to go to school in that community no matter how poor it is. At the same time, fees are going to have to be paid in order to get the child enrolled in the facility. Therefore, if the parent can’t afford to get the child into a different school, then the child is just going to have to deal with the education that he can get.
Dick DeVos has also been involved in plenty of different ventures which include running his father’s company, Amway. While being the CEO of the company, he has shown that he is aware of the market and what is needed to stay on top of things. He has also owned a few different franchises including the Orlando Magic franchise. He has also run for political office with the hopes of taking on the school industry and bringing forth the needed changes.
Dick and Betsy DeVos have a genuine love for their community and are especially willing to make sure that the children in the community are able to get the highest quality of education as possible. This is one of the reasons that they have brought forth the school choice initiative. This initiative helps parents get their children into better schools so that they can learn all of the valuable lessons they need to apply to their lives.
