When running a fundraiser, it is an exhilarating feeling when the goal for funding is reached. However, when it gets past that goal, that can bring about even more hope. The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts is one of the fundraisers that have reached and passed its goals. This is thanks for some very big givers in the fundraiser. A lot of entrepreneurs, business owners, and otherwise wealthy people can be really generous when it comes to giving. The only thing is that the cause has to be deemed worthy of such an amount given. If it is, then it will receive tons of funding from donors.
Among the people that have given so generously is Dick DeVos, a philanthropist and entrepreneur who has a history of owning franchises and working in higher level positions in different companies. Among the companies that he has worked in high level positions at is Amway Corporations. The company that was started by his father which provided people with household and hygiene products. Dick DeVos has eventually worked for the company as Vice President. He would move on to become one of the owners of the Orlando Magic Basketball franchise. Afterwards, he would get involved in political activities.
Dick DeVos is known for his charity which he uses to fund education projects among other things. With his nonprofit charity foundation, he is interested in providing funds to faith based organizations. He runs the nonprofit charity organization with his wife Betsy DeVos. His wife Betsy is a graduate of Holland Christian High School and Calvin College. Dick and Betsy take their faith very seriously and make it an important part of their lives, marriage and every important decision that they make. Among the principles that they have learned is generosity, and it shows in the efforts that they make in donating to different charitable causes.
