In an effort to help bolster the Marco Rubio run for the GOP presidential nomination Mr. DeVos has endorsed Mr. Rubio with a generous campaign contribution. In pledging this monetary support, it is a clear and resounding message that the Rubio campaign may depend upon the generosity of the DeVos family. As Dick DeVos stated, “ …it’s really trying to sort which one you feel is the best choice. And that’s what brought us to Marco as the race narrowed…”. In a race where Marco Rubio has yet to win one a state it is clear that any support for him is more than welcome. The DeVos family hopes that this contribution will enable Marco Rubio to capture Michigan and begin a positive roll towards the nomination. This is not Dick’s first time donating to campaigns or political candidates as was famously noted in House of Cards, a popular political Netflix series.
Dick is not a stranger to helping those who are in need of a financial leg up. Through his many charitable works he has been a juggernaut for those found to be outside of standard charitable support. Through the Dick and Betsy Devos Foundation there has been an outpouring of generosity that is not rivaled in Western Michigan thanks to this Amway heir’s fortune and aptitude for giving. From the revitalizing project Grand Action which is helping renew and invigorate the city of Grand Rapids to the Windquest Group that offers aid and assistance to many non-profit organizations, the Duo of Betsy and Dick DeVos have brought about real change in their community as well as their home state of Michigan.
It is safe to say that through the charitable work of DeVos there has been a real upsurge in the growth of the state of Michigan. It is this kind of innovation and forward thinking inspired by his father Rich DeVos that has brought this family to the forefront of Michigan charities.
Dick continues to be a beacon for those who are need of a financial lift and I would dare say that Marco Rubio is well aware of the generosity of the DeVos family. In the truest sense of the word Dick DeVos is a true American entrepreneur and his enthusiasm for those who want to support his dream can always depend on him to lend a guiding hand.
