Congratulations to Dick DeVos on Volpe as he is the 2016 Melges 32 Lauderdale Cup Champion, simultaneously snapping up the first ever Blue Water Series Ranking Champion title.
In the past three decades, Rich DeVos and his family have donated $36 million to Grand Valley State University. The extent of the Michigan billionaire’s financial support of the Grand Rapids-area public university is being revealed for the first time.
The DeVos family for the first time is shedding light on the totality of its philanthropy: nearly $1.2 billion in lifetime giving.
Several projects have created a new identity for Grand Rapids over the past two decades.
The Delta Air Lines Foundation and West Michigan Aviation Academy recently celebrated the Foundation’s $150,000 grant to the school for the purchase of a Cessna 172 to train future pilots.
