Living Philanthropic Ideals: Betsy Devos’ Financial Gifts

It is one thing to speak about your opinions, but it is quite another thing to actually back up your words with money. Financial gifts say a great deal about the person who contributes them: what that person stands for, what they support, and what they value. Lately I have been gaining inspiration from learning about the financial giving patterns of our US Secretary of Education: Betsy DeVos. Many of Devos’ gifts reflect her beliefs on education. Let’s look at some of her gifts, as well as her background.

 

Betsy DeVos grew up in Michigan, and attended a private Christian high school. She then attended Calvin College, also in Michigan, and studied business. DeVos entered politics soon after college, within the Republican Party. Her roles and responsibilities expanded considerably as the years progressed, leading up to her current seat as the Secretary of Education.

 

The philanthropic activities of Betsy DeVos highlight her devotion to education, a field that she has been passionate about for years. She and her husband, Dick DeVos, founded the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. This foundation gave New York’s Success Academy Charter Schools $150,000 in 2015, and then another promised gift of the same amount. In addition, her foundation gave $50,000 to the Foundation for Excellence in Education group.

 

Besides education, Betsy DeVos is also passionate about her Christian ideals and her conservative political views. Her gifts support these ideologies, and allow the groups which she supports the ability to be more active and create lasting change in the world. For examples of her support of the Christian faith, we can look to her many gifts to Christian educational groups, such as the Grand Rapids Christian School Association, Christian Schools International, and the Rehoboth Christian School Association.

 

She is personally active in the republican conservative party, but also gives money to back her own actions and words. For instance, she recently donated $6,500 to a group called the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, Inc.. This organization is known for spreading and promoting the conservative ideology on college campuses. Since DeVos herself was politically active during college, and later became more involved in the republican party, it makes sense that she would want to help college students explore and follow the conservative path as well.

 

I greatly admire people who use their money in ways that align with their personal beliefs and values. Betsy DeVos is a philanthropist that we can gain inspiration from, due to her consistent giving patters which stick so steadily to her passion for education, Christianity, and the conservative ideology. It is interesting to take a look at her specific gifts and notice how well they match with her actions as a political leader.

The Anti-Defamation League

The ADL supplies a free, easy to access web page with a roll of symbols and organizations labeled as “hateful.”

Some of the symbols include hand gestures, numbers that have certain meanings, popular phrases, acronyms, visual symbols that have certain historical implications, previous flags for past political entities that are labeled as “racist,” official symbols for certain organizations and symbols that are used for racially charged purposes but are also used outside of such purposes.

This list is a magnificent resource to have when you want to read up on organizations that are accused of being “hateful.” When you do read this list, you must read it with a little bit of doubt, because the symbols and groups that are listed have different politics surrounding them, as well as different meanings.

A lot of symbols and groups may be benign, or more benign than others, but are on the list because the Anti-Defamation League holds their own opinions about what is “racist” and what isn’t. For example, the symbol “100%” expresses pride toward being 100% of European blood and nothing else.

It is reasonable to say that there is a human dynamic for resentment, and perhaps hate, to exist when people are celebrating being 100% of a certain race or ethnic group. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://james-larkin.com/about/

However, Confederate flag is put on the same list as the symbol “100%,” even though the meaning of the Confederate flag is more wish-washy and subjective.

The Anti-Defamation League believes that the Confederate flag is a symbol of white supremacy and black slavery, because in mainstream thought, the Confederacy was supposedly fighting for their right to keep the institution of slavery.

However, there are actually a lot of people, both Black and White, who support the Confederate flag and symbols of the Confederacy. You do not have to be “white,” “100% white” or anything else to be a supporter of the Confederate flag.

People who support the Confederate flag claim that the Confederate flag is ingrained in the beautiful traditions of the south, for both Blacks and whites, and that taking the flag away is impeding upon their culture and history. Read more: Michael Lacey | Facebook and Michael Lacey | Twitter

Many people believe that the Confederacy’s flag and symbols honor those brave men on both sides who suffered and died, as well as their families who had to live with the aftermath of having dead relatives. Some people also claim that for the Confederacy, the Civil War was was not about keeping slaves—it was about keeping their political voice.

They claim that the North was actually doing things to profit that economically hurt the South and kept many Southerners in poverty. To have this viewpoint, you can have any identity and be of any background. There may be some individual people who use the Confederate flag in conjunction with their own one-sided, negative views regarding race—though that is not everyone.

Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

There is really not a lot to say about the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. Jim Lacey and Michael Larkin’s organization is more straight forward and specific when it comes to what they are advocating for.

Their organization takes grassroots action to help Latinos and immigrants without pointing so many fingers to an out of control extent like the Anti-Defamation League. The Fund helps to save people who are physically struggling through the desert, as well as settled people who need moral support.

Celebrity designers are not the only reason why Fabletics has been doing so well. In every facet, the brand has been different and has always implemented new ideas to make their name stand out from the crowd. Fabletics is currently one of the few clothing brands that function with a membership system. Customers who want to buy from the brand are required to register with them and opt in for a membership plan. This plan allows them to receive a certain amount of activewear sets per month depending on how many the customer wishes to receive. The brand also updates their clothing every month so that their customers always have new options to choose from. This has helped the brand incredibly and has helped them retain their customers and also attract new ones.

Fabletics knows that one of the main things that customers look for when buying things online is customer reviews. If another person has bought this product and has good things to say about it, the chances of others buying it are a lot greater. Because of this, the site has implemented a review system, which has worked out brilliantly for them. People often refer to these as a source to see whether or not the items that they are looking to buy are really what they are going to get or not.
