The DeVos Family’s Charitable Giving

The DeVos family has is known as a group of dedicated philanthropists. The entrepreneurial family believes in giving back if you have the means to do so. Dick DeVos says giving back is something his father, Richard Marvin DeVos, instilled in him and his siblings from an early age. Dick DeVos seems to take after his father the most when it comes to philanthropy.


Dick DeVos and his wife have made numerous charitable contributions over the years. They have been together for more than three decades. He and his wife, Betsy took the business world by complete surprise when they lifted the veil on the $139 million dollars spent in philanthropy. Many have commended the very wealthy couple for their commitment to helping the less fortunate and improving the world as a whole the best way they can. Something like this is just refreshing to see. Normally rich people only spend that type of money on materialistic things that help no one but themselves. Hopefully the two of them unveiling this fact will inspire other wealthy people to become more involved with philanthropy efforts.


The couple founded the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation based on what they learned from their parents growing up in 1989. They have supported several non-profit organizations devoted to community and justice through the foundation. They look at it as a vehicle for charitable giving. Both are more hands on with the foundation than expected. Which is hard to believe considering how busy they are. But they make a concerted effort to do so knowing how passionate they are about their work.


Dick DeVos’ work in philanthropy uncovers a new dimension of him. Before the unveiling of he and his wife contributions I would have summarized the businessman as a hard working entrepreneur who has accumulated much success in his career. Thankfully he is not some rich guy who lives in his own bubble and sees the bigger picture. People like Dick DeVos have the highest probability of truly impacting the world in a positive way. The world would be a better place if there were more people like him.
