Following in the footsteps of our parents, we aim to be faithful servants. Our work focuses on education, community, the arts, justice, and leadership.
In response to the financial blessing they have received, Dick and Betsy DeVos launched their foundation in 1989 as a vehicle for charitable giving.
Dick DeVos is very active in the community, including co-chairing Grand Action, which has been a leader in revitalizing downtown Grand Rapids; and serving as a board member of the Grand Rapids Economic Club, Willow Creek Association, Spectrum Health, Project Clarity, and the West Michigan Aviation Academy.
Dick is also actively involved with The Windquest Group, a Michigan-based, privately held investment management firm with diversified projects in technology, manufacturing, clean-tech industry, hospitality, and nonprofit solutions.
Betsy DeVos is a champion for top-notch education for all students, regardless of their location or socioeconomic level. Betsy currently serves as the Secretary of Education, and has stepped away from her Foundation duties to focus her efforts on this position.
Betsy and Dick have been married for over 30 years. They have four children, a daughter-in-law, two sons-in-law, and five grandchildren.
