A sneak pick into the life of Betsy DeVos

There are only a few women who I have come across in my career as a writer who have shown me how generous and kind hearted they are the way Betsy DeVos has. She is by far one of the most philanthropic women figures in the United States Of America who for many years has kept donating all in the name of helping those that are less fortunate in the society. Her attributes are endless owing to the fact that she is a very active person in life and the community. Personally, I adore the many things she has been able to achieve since her early years in college when she established her herself as a reformer.

Her years in college manifested her ability to actively engage in issues that were experienced at the time in campus and as fate would dictate she carried this spirit out into her community after she graduated. Her life as a reformist and a philanthropist has seen her lead and hold very many campaigns and fund raisings with the aim of raising enough funds which all go to good cause.

The most profound attributes that Betsy DeVos has is the ability to innovatively come up with solutions to problems experienced in the society. It is for this reason that she was named the Chairperson of Windquest Group a firm she helped found with her husband Dick DeVos in the year 1989. It is a firm made up of many other small companies all aimed at investing and manufacturing of clean energy technology.

Also, Betsy DeVos is also the Chair of Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation, an organization that she uses to channel all her donations in the society. Mrs. DeVos has been known for many years to donate widely to a variety of causes, but education has always been at the heart of it all. As a result of this, she is an active member of quite some local and national boards which include Foundation for Excellence in Education, Kids Hope USA, Mars Hill Bible Church and last but not least DeVos Institute for Arts Management, Kennedy Center.

Besty DeVos backs her generosity giving towards the educational sector stating that she sees it as her civic duty towards her country and the society in general. This generous act of giving is in a way unique to her and her husband since the both of them have deviated from the extended family way of giving that is usually political based.

Through the many scholarships she has been able to offer, many students across the country owe thanks to her for her generosity that enabled them to achieve their goals and dreams. Her scholarships in a way have helped bridge the gap in government funding that has always left others in the community feeling neglected.
