Come on, Betsy! Surprise us once more!
U.S. Secretary of Education and Reform, Betsy DeVos, is none other than a living sensation and inspiration to all that is possible, in this life, for those who commit to making a solid, lasting change – especially in regards to the intricate world of politics and its influence on today’s education system. Besty’s been there and done that, championing a change on many aspects of the playing field, in hopes to further increase the quality of education that’s offered to every student from kindergarten to university adult and graduate programs altogether. As Secretary of Defense, she cannot keep her mouth shut on the importance of a good education, nor can she ever keep her values and core principles neatly tucked away in a closet or under a bed, and this is what several other political leaders and even candidates love about the woman: She is firm when she needs to be firm, but she can also be as loving and gentle as a dove; she is truly a woman who leads with her heart and her head in unified balance.

Betsy Devos has financially assisted countless organizations and Republican, conservative players and forerunners in the past. She plans to further beat her recent charitable giving amount of $139 million; in her’s and her husband’s total lifetimes so far, they have both given this amount. She plans to give a whole lot more in the next 20 years, so stay tuned.
Her husband is Dick DeVos, who was previously the head of NBA Orlando Magic Division. He also worked for the renowned Amway Group. Dick is no less an avid supporter of firm conservative values upon American society, likewise believing that it all begins in the family structure – especially the educational realm.
In 1989, Betsy and Dick took to the skies and started a fund like no other – The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. This foundation is entirely motivated on faith and holds that all giving should come from the heart; God gives a person many good things in this lifetime, and it then becomes that person’s responsibility to give much to others out of the abundance of his life and heart. That’s what the funds core values are all about; they have not changed in nearly 30 years of success. The foundation has proudly given more than $11 million dollars in 2015 alone, a record worthy note; it hopes to only increase in power and number in the next couple of years.
Private Christian school initiatives alone have been beyond blessed to have the DeVoses on their side. This couple has given nearly $10 million dollars to different schools of this nature. They plan to give far more.
