There are millions of people who need help to some degree across the country. In the world today, the need for help is something that many people face. For many people, one of the ways that they receive help is through charities. There are several reasons why charities are a place that help people. One of the main reasons is that charities are primarily created to help people. The organizational structure of charities is designed to provide a central core that helps people in a variety of ways.
Typically, charities have certain types of assistance that they provide, and charities let people know what help the charities provide. This is useful information for people looking for help, but it is also useful information for people who are willing to give financial contributions to charities. Many people give financial contributions to charities that provide help to causes that they have a special concern or feeling towards.
There are many types of charities. While all charities have purpose and goals, at the heart of any charity is the ability to get financial contributions. Without contributions, it is hard for charities to raise the money needed to meet the purpose and goals of the charities. Although many charities struggle to raise money, there are charities that do very well regarding financial contributions. One of the ways that some charities are able to raise significant amounts of money is because they have at least one wealthy philanthropist who is willing to contribute a significant amount of money to the charities.
An individual who is a well known philanthropist is Dick DeVos. A generous giver of money to charities, Dick DeVos has given over 139 millions dollars to various charities during his lifetime. The charities that he has given money to cover a wide range of causes. Dick DeVos has a caring heart and wants to help people. Therefore, he helps numerous charities that support various causes.
The current president of the Windquest Group, Dick DeVos has been an executive at various for several decades. The leadership that he shows in his professional career is evident in his approach to financial contributions. Dick DeVos takes the time to learn about the charities where he provides contributions. Along with his wife Betsy DeVos, the couple has helped thousands of people though their contributions.
Dick DeVos has accomplished a great deal in his professional career. He has provided leadership at the executive level with Amway and the Orlando Magic along with other companies. I believe that Dick DeVos is someone that people can look to as the way to handle success in life. He gives to people to help them have a chance at a better life. Sometimes people need help and Dick DeVos is someone who has shown that he wants to help people.
Any conversation about New Brunswick, New Jersey is not complete unless the name Boraie is mentioned. The Boraie family is one of the most influential families in the state. Omar Boraie, the Egyptian chemist, turned real estate developer, saw opportunity in New Brunswick when people started moved out of the city and into the suburbs during the 1960s. The mass exodus from downtown New Brunswick was an economic nightmare for the city. Empty buildings, as well as drug and gang activity, made the inner city a mecca for criminals and lowlifes. Omar Boraie invested in downtown New Brunswick in the 1970s, and that investment paid off. Boraie Development was the first company to build a high-rise office building downtown. The One Spring Street residential building was the next Boraie project, reports Yahoo. When Sam Boraie joined his father’s company, the revitalization of downtown New Brunswick was in full swing, but Sam added another dimension to the downtown project.
According to his Crunchbase, Sam Boraie is a New York City lover. The architecture and the pulse of the city attract New Jersey residents like Sam to the city every day. Sam wanted to duplicate that pulse in New Brunswick, so he played a role in developing the first luxury residential high-rise in New Brunswick. Sam also worked with Shaq O’Neil, the basketball great, on a Newark luxury residential building. Both projects confirmed Sam Boraie’s creativity and his talent in the real estate business.
But Sam Boraie is not just a real estate developer. Sam is a humanitarian. Boraie spends a great deal of time working with Elijah’s Promise, the nonprofit that feeds the hungry in New Jersey. Since 1989, Elijah’s Promise has alleviated hunger and empowered low-income families in New Jersey. Elijah’s Promise operates a soup kitchen, catering business, culinary arts school, and a pay-if-you-can café for people that don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Sam Boraie is a member of the Advisory Board of State Theater New jersey, and according to Sam, the nonprofit serves more than 100,000 meals a year to hungry people. The organization also trains unskilled workers, so they can get a job in the food industry. Sam Boraie’s motto and the Elijah’s Promise motto is the same; “no one in the state of New Jersey should go hungry.”
Breaking the cycle of poverty and harnessing the power of food are Sam Boraie’s goals. Even though Sam Boraie is exposed to the finer things in life, he spends a great deal of time with people who have less than the bare necessities. Sam played an important role in establishing the Elijah’s Promise Culinary School through his leadership and donations. The Elijah’s Promise Culinary School trains hundreds of students and then helps place those students in food service jobs. In 2010, the school expanded its curriculum. The baking and pastry program was added to the curriculum. The baking and pastry program gives students a chance to work in the professional baking industry once they complete the course. Boraie also supports the Meals on Wheels program in the state.
