Having grown up in Hungary where they were subjected to Nazi rule, Soros is quite knowledgeable when it comes to both communism and capitalism. He has an inspiring story of rising from nothing to being among the richest men in the world today.

He gained great success in the financial market, and from that success, he was able to set up his own foundation which he called it Open Society Fund. He founded this fund in 1979 and the main agenda of the fund was to open up societies that are closed off and to make the societies that are open more viable. His first task was in South Africa. However, apartheid proved too hard to crack. So he turned his focus to Central Europe. Read more on NYTimes.com.

According to him, now that communism is a thing of the past for many nations, instead of enjoying the new found freedom in capitalism, people in these former communist nations are now struggling to survive.

Dick DeVos Jr.’s Passion for Education Charities and an illustrious Career under His Belt

Dick and Betsy DeVos continuously contribute in their charitable giving’s which have grown to about $139 million over decades of donating to churches and other noble courses. In 2015, the DeVos’ gave $11.6 million in charity aid, according to a report posted on the DeVos Family Foundation site.

Charity Courses

 

For Dick and Betsy, education is a priority. In 2015, they gave away $3 million to learning causes, equivalent to 26 percent of their generous donations that year. Their Foundation awarded an additional $357,000, to organizations that support education reforms.

 

Dick sights that part of the reason they value education courses is that the current learning system fails to align with the American dream. He partly blames the civil rights movement as a fundamental problem, due to kids growing up in zones where education was hardly accessible in the quest to achieve the American dream.

 

Dick DeVos critically disagrees with the “standard” public education that doesn’t offer diversified learning for students. As a result, he believes that there is a need to reform the entire system to allow the present teaching staff to achieve better results.

 

Principal beneficiaries from the DeVos purse in 2013 include; College of Cinematic Arts in Grand Rapids-Michigan, Detroit Charter School, Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Alma Mater Northwood University, West Michigan Aviation Academy, Potter’s House in Wyoming, and Rehoboth Christian School in New Mexico.

 

Dick DeVos says the donations mostly aim at helping communities and people, directly. The couple is a great benefactor of the Potter’s House-urban Christian school and Grand Rapids Christian Schools.
