One of the reasons why Betsy Devos provide so much funding to these various organization is because they help to bring balance to U.S. society. Betsy and her husband are conservatives who believe in a conservative cause. They are deeply religious individuals that values hard work and a strong education.
The Devos’s have always been deeply involved in the education system in their home city of Grand Rapids and in the state of Michigan. They have also carried this love of knowledge into the national landscape. Especially, since Betsy is the U.S. Secretary of Education. The Devos even have their own aviation based charter school.
Many charter, public and university schools have benefited from the help of the Devos’s. Education is a strong point for the Devos’s because they realize that it is necessary for people to have a good life. Without a good education people cannot live a better life. An education permits people to make more money and to greater options in life. This is one of the main reasons why the Devos’s really endorse education.
Religion is not as influential as it used to be in the past. However, it is still a vital part of any community. Religious organizations are important for the Devos because they help to keep society in order and from steering too far to the left.
