Betsy DeVos philanthropic initiatives

Besty DeVos is the current secretary of education in the administration of Donald Trump. She was appointed to this position due to her passion for education reforms. She is the wife of Dick DeVos, a prominent businessman cum politician in Michigan. The family has a vast wealth that is generated from the business ventures that the family has. The DeVos have multinational family businesses, which generate huge amounts of income. The DeVos is ranked as one of the wealthiest families in the country. Their wealth runs from the era of Richard DeVos, father to Dick DeVos. The family has been very supportive of various initiatives in the country. Most of the initiatives that they support have been in the education and political sectors.



Betsy and Dick DeVos run a family foundation called Dick and Betsy Family Foundation. This is a family foundation they have been using to support various nonprofits and charities in the country. The family is estimated to have spent over $1.3 billion in support of the initiatives which mostly fall under educational reforms and Christian beliefs support. The family is passionate about giving back to the community. They want to see a better America, where positive initiatives are supported. The family has even gone out of their way to training their two children how to join the philanthropic cause. The two children have already started contributing to initiatives that matter to the society. They are surely ready to take over the initiative that their parents started.



Betsy and Dick DeVos have particularly been very supportive of educational reforms in the country. Through their foundation, they have been supporting numerous children in Michigan access quality education. Betsy DeVos has been passionate about educational reforms and her wish has been to see the country provide quality education to every child. The public school education sector have been particularly been unfair to many students. Many low income earning families have been forced to take their children to this schools which offer lower quality education as compared to private schools.



Betsy DeVos has been pushing for every child to have access to good quality of education even. To show his commitment to this cause, she has been supporting various two school s in Michigan. He has been contributing over $20000 every year which are meant to go to support the two schools. The biggest chunk of this fund goes to providing scholarships to students from low-income families. These are scholarships to schools where they can get a better education.



Betsy DeVos and Dick DeVos have not stopped there, they have been supporting various Christian groups as well as social welfare initiatives. They have been supporting the Maryland’s Arts Management School. This is an initiative that will support young people with art skills grow them.



I see the contributions of the family as a step in the right direction in the prosperity of the country.
