Dick DeVos the Philanthropist

Dick DeVos is widely recognized for his title as President of the Windquest Group, as well as his substantial political donations and for his politically active wife Betsy DeVos. Less known to me, was that he and the rest of the DeVos family are also substantially active philanthropists, donating almost 139 million dollars throughout their lifetimes. Former President of Amway and past CEO of Orlando Magic, Dick DeVos, along with his wife, gave almost 11.6 million dollars of charitable donations in the year 2015. I have also discovered that when they donate, they are specific in how it will be used in order to bring about the greatest positive impact.


The greatest percentage of Dick’s philanthropy, at 26%, is given to education and another 3% to groups striving for education reform. This is due largely to help achieve his ideal of an education system that uniformly provides a quality education without the quality depending on the location. With this in mind, DeVos launched the first aviation-themed charter school a little over 5 years ago. This school focuses its teaching on STEM, aeronautical engineering, and robotics to give students profitable and sought after skills. The charter collects students from 7 surrounding counties, 40% of whom are minorities, a third of whom are considered economically disadvantaged by current standards. The success of this school, I believe, is in part displayed by its 86% graduation rate, which DeVos is proud of but is more concerned that the students are receiving a positive experience and that it is satisfying the parents’ high expectations.


Dick and Betsy together also donated a whopping 22 million towards the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland to further the efforts of Michael Kaiser’s purpose to strengthen the business side of the arts. Both Kaiser and the DeVos believing that the future of the diverse global arts community depends on having quality arts management, to which I must agree. DeVos also made a monetary gift to the Spectrum Health Foundation, to obtain a top physician and researcher in childhood cancers for the Helen DeVos’ Children’s Hospital. This led to a dramatic increase in the survival rate of those treated there for childhood brain cancer. It is clear to see that DeVos is not only a philanthropist but one that plays an active role in seeing that his giving makes a positive difference.
