Historical Context:
Helen DeVos (1927-2017), was the wife of Amway Founder Richard DeVos. Together they formed the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, a foundation and grant-making body formed in 1970 that was partly responsible for funding the creation of the Sport Business Management Program at the University of Central Florida. In addition, the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital and its reconstruction in 2006 were influenced greatly by the DeVos' contributions.
