Veil Lifted

Dick and Betsy DeVos have just lifted the veil on their philanthropy by taking it to a whole new level – and MLive was there to cover it all. Though Betsy kindly declined to be the one interviewed this time around, the wonderful Dick was more than ready to step up to the plate and give an update – which many had been dying to hear. In the recent interview, he discussed his tactics and strategies, the reason for why he and his wife give so much back to many communities, the passion that drives each of them and so much more. It appears that Dick did not hold back any punches either this time around, nor did he fail to have a solid answer with a firm response to each issue tackled – the main one of which involved all his past and present giving missions.

 

He and his wife cannot currently keep track of all the places, people and organizations that they have donated to all these last years; for if they tried to keep a record, they wouldn’t have a big enough notebook. Besides, where is the fun in that? This couple generously donates from the bottom of the heart and does not let a budget or certain numbers hold them back: They simply give and let the seeds fail where they may. This is what America honestly loves about this special couple, besides the fact that they do it all together as an adventure; there is perhaps nothing that Dick does without first consulting his wife and vice versa.

 

Dick DeVos is a lucky man. He is married to the sweet and beautiful Betsy DeVos, with which he has several children. Dick has led the way in major funding, and Betsy is never a step behind him.

 

Dick may also be found on dickdevos.com. He is also on Facebook. He holds 18,000 likes and followers, respectively. He resides in the beautiful city of Grand Rapids, Mich.

 

Dick and his wife have recently passed the mark of $139 million dollars in total donations this year and only plan to beat that record very soon as Dick has just mentioned, further noting the following crucial truth: The more one gives, the more one learns to enjoy giving and to truly discover his greatest life’s calling – the needs of others. There are many needs, and Dick plans to gradually uncover as many as he can while putting a permanent solution to the many monetary needs that top charities and people alike face daily. Though new challenges and needs will always rise in this lifetime, he notes that he can do his best to meet as many as possible.
