Over One Billion Dollars Donated By Devos Family
Many people have donated money in the past few years, even the rich and famous. In fact, some people who are rich and famous have donated millions and, in some cases, even billions of dollars. It should come as no surprise that Dick Devos has given away money, too.
The Devos family does not tell about how much they donate normally, believing the gifts to be better private; however, they have recently announced the amount of money they’ve given away in the past few years, and it’s astonishing.
Are you ready to hear about the amount? It is over 1.2 billion USD. It’s an amazing amount, one the family plans on continuing to give. There have recently been many sources that have confirmed the story, meaning that they haven’t simply been bragging about the amount of money they’ve given away for no reason; the amount is actually true.
Devos himself is fairly wealthy, being the 67th richest person in the United States of America. However, he doesn’t believe in keeping all of that wealth for himself. He believes in donating and giving away money. In the year 2013 alone, the family gave away over 90 million dollars.
It’s easy to see why the Devos family is one of the most generous families in the United States. It’s great to see a wealthy family who really believes in donating money to those who need it more than they do.
Paying it forward isn’t a new trend, but it’s great to see that it’s on the rise by families like the Devos family.
