Of the many generous families in present day, one family in particular stands out not only due to the generosity as well as the success of the family within the world of business, but also is a family that stands out to the others due to the fact that this family emphasizes what it means to be a community and to help a community grow. This family is known as the DeVos family and is a family that is not only known for their ties within the world of politics, but is also a family that is known to be the owners of Amway Corporation, a growing multi-billion dollar business. The business of Amway Corporation is an international business that specifically offers households all over the world with excellent products that are not only inexpensive, but are also of high quality. The DeVos family has made sure that the company not only generates profits, but that also the customers are happy with what is sold. Read her interview with Philantrophy Table.
Of the many members of the DeVos family, three individuals in particular stand out. These individuals are Richard DeVos, Betsy DeVos, and Dick DeVos. Richard DeVos is the founder of the company and laid the foundation to help grow the family name and to help the name live on far into the future. Dick DeVos has followed closely behind his father and has worked hard to not only create a legacy that will last, but has also worked hard to make his father proud of what he has accomplished.
Along with Dick DeVos is his wife Betsy DeVos, a woman who has always loved helping others and has created numerous foundations in order to support many initiatives across the country. Betsy DeVos and her husband, Dick DeVos are particularly interested in the initiative of education. The couple believes that education should be the number one priority and should be made available to individuals across the United States to only those that truly want to be excellent and that show merit. Mr. and Mrs. DeVos have donated to numerous scholarship foundations and have even donated funds to create schools. Visit Betsy’s profile page on Facebook.
Of the many accomplishments that Dick and Betsy DeVos have accomplished over the years, one of their proudest times was building a school in West Michigan that not only offers excellent education, but that also makes sure that children are encouraged to go to college. This school is known as the West Michigan Aviation Academy and focuses on inspiring individuals to pursue their dreams of flying. As an individual who has loved to fly and has his license, Dick DeVos and even Betsy DeVos wanted to create an opportunity for others to pursue their dreams for the future.
