Dick DeVos Reveals How Much His Family Has Donated to Charity

Dick DeVos runs and supports many charitable groups, alongside his wife, –Betsy. DeVos’ family is interested in helping the community in various ways. They invest most of their time and money in education, leadership, community development, art and human rights. Mr. DeVos recently revealed in an interview about the total donations from the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation. Dick and his wife have donated more than $139 million since they began their works of philanthropy.

Over the years, Mr. and Mrs. DeVos have faced public scrutiny as well as criticism for their contributions towards political causes. But most people aren’t aware that they give more to charitable organizations than to political groups. In 2015, Betsy and Dick DeVos made political contributions that amounted to $5.3 million. They offered more than $11.6 million to support charitable causes, within the same year. So why did Dick reveal these figures? He wanted to promote two virtues: Transparency and accountability. It had nothing to do with Betsy’s appointment as the US Education Secretary.

The Dick and Betsy DeVos family like to take part in philanthropic activities. They believe that the best way to build a better world is to give back to the community. The family’s foundation focuses a lot on education, especially the issue of school choice. Betsy DeVos has been fighting for reforms in the education system for many years. Dick has always offered her the support she needs to keep advocating for high-quality education. According to the couple, the government needs to make a few changes in the current education system.

Aside from education, the foundation also supports art and culture. Betsy and Dick DeVos partnered with the University of Maryland to form the DeVos Institute of Arts. They want to nurture young artist and entrepreneurs through the programs they’ll offer at the facility. The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation also supports AFP, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, ArtPrize and several other organizations.

Bob Reina Loves Hearing Success Stories From People Talk Fusion Has Helped

The only thing more rewarding than taking a risk that ultimately leads to you becoming successful in business is also providing a similar opportunity to others to follow that same path. That’s what Bob Reina, founder of Talk Fusion is excited about with his work. Reina explained in an interview with Inspirery that the stories of those who had found success in business as Talk Fusion associates were what was most important to Reina, and he likes to hear how he can improve his company even more to help them. Reina started this company because he loves using video to chat or to have a story produced, but he also loves giving to others and he’s made Talk Fusion as much about philanthropy as it is business.

 

Reina also told Inspirery that he went into direct selling for video marketing because while he enjoyed some things about being a police officer, he never felt he was at his full potential to help others with a tight schedule and limited paycheck. His entering the direct selling industry had its own set of mishaps and times when the paycheck was meager, but when the idea for Talk Fusion came to him it became immensely popular with everyone he showed it to. The company started out as simply email video software marketing, but it’s since included newsletters, presentations, conferencing and signup form software.Learn more : https://www.facebook.com/TalkFusion/videos/2963037773434/
