Mary McChesney Generous Donation to Orange Coast College

The new planetarium under development at Orange Coast College recently got a galactic donation of $ 1 million from a retired professor of the school, Mary McChesney. She taught English and Spanish for 33 years and was also the executive director of the Orange Coast College Foundation in 1983.The funds were in honour of her late partner Adelyn Bonin who was also a professor of German at OCC. The generous donation is meant to fund a device used to demonstrate Earth’s rotation, Foucault pendulum. The new planetarium will be primarily for scientific studies for the students and the community as a whole.

 

The ground-breaking of the planetarium began in 2016, and it will be more advanced than the existing one which was established in the 1950’s. It will incorporate a 129-seat auditorium and an exhibit hall featuring an Atmospheric Administration Science and a National Oceanic on a sphere display globe. It will be a major improvement from the old planetarium which had a capacity of about 35 seats. The construction will be open for use by 2018 fall semester and has a budget of approximately $20 million with the larger part of financing originating from a 2012 bond measure. So far OCC has acquired about $2.6 million from donations. In addition to providing a scientific resource for OCC students, it will also be used by students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Dick DeVos: Successful Businessman Giving Back to the People

Dick DeVos is an American entrepreneur who came from the wealthy and influential DeVos family. He is married to Betsy DeVos, and has been focusing on doing business and philanthropic works. Dick DeVos, when he was younger, strived to be successful. He never used his father’s influence to get what he wants. Instead, he worked for it, and persevered to get to the top. His first job was at their company, Amway, but he started at the bottom. Through his hard work, Dick DeVos slowly climbed the corporate ladder, until he became the vice president. He managed to increase the company’s profit under his leadership, but he had to step down six years later when he lost his interest in the corporate world. He returned a few years later when his father decided to step down, and he replaced him as Amway’s president. During his term, Amway’s revenue rose, even beating his previous records. It was also in his term that the company managed to expand overseas.

 

The family of Dick DeVos has been recognized as one of the top givers in America, and as they have disclosed earlier this year, the family has already given more than $1.2 billion to different groups, organizations, and charities. The DeVos family stated that they will keep on giving a portion of their money to groups and organizations who have the same mindset as they are – those groups who promote education, values, and arts. The DeVos family has a total of five foundations under their name, including the foundation that Dick DeVos, along with his wife Betsy, have established. Their foundation’s objective is to help the people in the state of Michigan, and they believe that this aim is attainable by focusing their foundation on five major areas: community, education, arts, justice and leadership. Dick DeVos and his wife are giving back to the community by sponsoring a children’s hospital, as well as providing shelters for those who does not have anywhere to stay. They are also sponsoring activities that would encourage the people to live a better life, and livelihood programs for those who do not have a sustainable source of income. Education is another priority of Dick DeVos and Betsy DeVos, and they wanted to make sure that children in their community would be able to go to school. They give out vouchers and scholarship to all children who wanted to study but do not have the means to. They are also assisting deserving students with financial support, until they graduate from college. The DeVos couple is also lovers of art, and they have initiated a competition called ArtPrize, which has become one of the largest art competitions in the world being attended by thousands of people. They are also helping out people gain justice by using their network of lawyers and judges to accompany them at the court. Finally, they are also funding and training people, especially those who have the potential in being an asset in their business, in being a leader by supporting them financially. Dick DeVos, despite being a busy person, still has the heart to help the people in his community.
