Who We Are

Because of their commitment to community, Dan and Pamella DeVos formed their foundation in 1992 to support causes and organizations that are near to their hearts.

The Foundation

Purpose

To build strong, healthy communities by investing in organizations that positively impact our culture.

Arts

Enhancing the vitality of arts and culture

A passionate commitment to the arts is essential for a strong and vibrant community. Art requests should provide opportunities for people to experience, understand, and appreciate how different kinds of artistic expression can enrich their lives.

The Foundation considers programs that sustain arts and culture and increase participation in these areas:

  • Performing Arts – including ballet, symphonies, theaters
  • Visual Arts and Museums – ranging from art displays, to sculpture parks and museums
  • Arts Education – providing opportunities that encourage people of all ages to engage in and experience the arts
  • Capital Projects – new construction or upgrades to existing arts facilities

Community

Promoting a vibrant community

Improving the health and well-being of individuals, families, and neighborhoods is essential for everyone to thrive and reach their full potential. 

The Foundation supports opportunities that benefit and strengthen our communities in the following ways:

  • Community Projects – helping communities enrich the lives of residents
  • Health and Human Service Programs – providing quality care for individuals and giving them the capacity to improve their lives through physical health, mental health, and rehabilitation programs

Education

Strengthening institutions

It is crucial that future generations are prepared to tackle critical life decisions. The Foundation gives priority to educational organizations with whom we are personally involved, and those that help students gain the knowledge and experience they need to compete in a global economy.

Apply

The Daniel and Pamella DeVos Foundation receives hundreds of requests each year from worthy organizations. However, due to the high volume of requests, the Foundation primarily focuses its support on partners who are closely aligned with our three areas of focus and with whom we have an existing relationship.

New requests may be submitted at any time and are reviewed quarterly. Please contact the Foundation with any questions.
