Daniel and Pamella DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health

Thank you to the donors who made this building possible!

Dan and Pamella DeVos
Dan and Pamella DeVos share a desire to support their community and the organizations that help make it thrive. They have been involved with Grand Valley State University for more than 30 years, benefitting both students and West Michigan.

As the lead donors for the Daniel and Pamella DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health, they are continuing the DeVos family’s legacy of providing transformative support for health and education in our region.

Rich and Helen DeVos
Rich and Helen DeVos provided exceptional leadership, service, and support to Grand Valley State University and the Grand Valley University Foundation from the beginning. It was their leadership and encouragement that helped to create the university’s Robert C. Pew Grand Rapids Campus and the initial building in the university’s Health Campus, the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences. Rich and Helen’s legacy of supporting health and education for our region continues today. They joyfully matched the generosity of their son and daughter-in-law as leadership donors for the Daniel and Pamella DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health.
