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 serving as a board member of the Spectrum Health System, Project Clarity (advisory), West Michigan Aviation Academy, American Enterprise Institute, and Willow Creek Association. 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 excellent education for all students, regardless of their location or socioeconomic level. Betsy currently serves as the Secretary of Education and has stepped aside from her Foundation duties in order to focus her efforts on this position. In the interim, Dick and Betsy’s children have taken on leadership roles at the Foundation.
Betsy and Dick have been married for over 30 years. They have seven children and eight grandchildren.
