Of the countless organizations that have benefited from the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, we have the JF Kennedy Centre for The Performing Arts. It is one of the many institutions that is being funded by the DeVos Foundation. Recently, they had a fundraiser, and the Center managed to get more funds than they had earlier on expected. The Management team at JF Kennedy Center were utterly impressed and decided to up their target so that they can give a chance to people of good will to keep contributing.
The Kennedy Foundation has so far managed to raise an amount of $135.0 million. The money is directed towards the funding of a construction project. The construction is visualized to be one of a kind. It would have unique features like a pavilion and pedestrian lanes that connect to the JF Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. The construction will also enable the reconstruction of the dining halls, offices, and recreational facilities.
Initially, the construction had been estimated at $125 million. But after it was keenly examined into by construction agencies and standardization agencies the figure doubled. The final designs of the structures looked exquisite. The idea of revamping and expanding the JF Kennedy has been a work in progress since the year 2013.
