Eric LefofskyAnd Tempus Help Cancer Patients

There are many parts to fighting cancer. One of the biggest parts of it is the actual fight. The medicines, the opportunities and even the surgeries that people need to go through to be able to get rid of cancer. All of these make it hard to deal with things but something that many people do not think about is the way that the person feels. Tempus is aiming to do that. Not only are they involved in cancer research to help make the disease more manageable and less fatal but they are also working to make sure that the people are able to get the help that they need from the different opportunities.

When it comes to Tempus, Eric Lefofsky knows that it is something that is close to his heart. His wife had cancer and he realized that it was something that could turn a person upside down. He also saw the direct effects that cancer has on a family unit. Eric wanted to make sure that nobody else had to deal with it in a way that others had to. He knew what it was like to do it comfortably and with money but he had no idea how hard it would be to do it without any money or a job to be able to help out.

Eric Lefofsky created Tempus in combination with an expert geneticist. Together, they worked to come up with options for people with cancer. Not only did they work to create medicinal opportunities and even alternative methods of taking care of it but they also worked to make sure that they were helping people who had cancer get the emotional care that they needed, too. It was a way for them to make a difference for those who suffered from cancer.

Dick DeVos And His Wife Betsy Are Education Reform Activists

Two people who have been working around the clock to bring education reform to Michigan and around the country are Dick and Betsy DeVos, two entrepreneurs who are also civic leaders and philanthropists. Philanthropy Roundtable once interviewed Betsy DeVos to find out why education reform was so important to her. She explained how as a parent who sent her own children to private schools, she saw how some families could barely afford to send their children to private schools, and how others wanted to but couldn’t afford it. Through the family foundation, Dick and Betsy were able to startup scholarships for these families, and even have worked to startup groups like the Great Lakes Education Project, and have been a part of education reform laws passed in other states.


Activism and philanthropy runs in Dick DeVos‘s family. He’s the son of Richard DeVos, a philanthropist and co-founder of Amway Corporation, as well as the current owner of the NBA’s Orlando Magic. Dick learned about running a business as a young man, and after graduating from Northwood University went to work at the family business. He became CEO in 1993, and through his leadership the company saw massive expansions into Asian and Australian markets, and generated profits in the billions.


Dick stepped down from Amway in 2002, and today he and Betsy primarily run The Windquest Group, an alternative investment firm based in Grand Rapids, MI. Dick first took steps to enact education reforms when he ran for public office on the Michigan State Board of Education and won. In addition to starting up scholarship programs through his foundation, he and Betsy also sponsor the Education Freedom Fund, and even started up their own charter school called The West Michigan Aviation Academy. In addition to education, the DeVos’s also made a generous grant to the completion of The Kennedy Center’s art institute which was renamed for them.


The DeVos’s have long supported politically conservative groups such as Heritage Foundation and Hudson Institute, and Betsy formerly chaired the Michigan Republican Party. Dick decided to run for governor in 2006 after becoming displeased with incumbent Jennifer Granholm, but was narrowly defeated by her. He joined a coalition that was eventually able to get a right-to-work law passed in 2012 against heavy opposition from union leaders. Dick also has served on the board at Grand Action Committee, a committee that’s helped downtown Grand Rapids grow and attract business.

George Soros Philanthropy Is Unsurpassed

Open Society Foundation began in 1979 and was founded by George Soros. Recently however the organization escaped an infiltration by Conservative activist James O’Keefe. O’Keefe hindered his attempt nonetheless before he even begun. O’Keefe made a call but forgot to disconnect it afterward thus exposing every plan that he had.

George Soros funds open Society Foundation. Soros was born in 1930 in Hungary, before moving to England in 1947. George Soros attended London School of Economics where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in science in philosophy and an MSC in philosophy.

Soros is on the top 30 list of the richest people in the world. George Soros is a well-known supporter of the American progressive and liberal causes. He has donated lots of millions of dollars to their cause. Soros has always been a philanthropic person and has assisted many people around the world. He was a champion in helping many Eastern European countries to transition peacefully from communism to capitalism. George Soros is among the world’s largest donors who have donated to support higher education in Central European University in Budapest.

During the apartheid era in South Africa, Soros helped many black students get access to the University of Cape Town. Soros also did help with the provision of Xerox machine to print the banned text to promote cultural exchange with the West. Soros also created the Central European University after the fall of Berlin wall to promote critical thinking. His philanthropy has now expanded and is in the United States, Asia, Africa. The organization, (Open Society Foundation) has helped many open paralegals and lawyers represent numerous individuals that have been unlawfully detained. Visit the site at

Open Society Foundation has supported many gifted students pay their school fees. Soros also helped establish an international system that would help to bring accountability and transparency to the natural resource industry. This would help promote fairness, prevent payoffs to tyrants who cause political unrest and violence to many people around the world.

The contribution by Open Society to the world has been outstanding thus the recent attempt by O’Keefe to infiltrate the organization surprised many. O’Keefe made a call to the organization and pretended to be an American-Hungarian. He identified himself as Victor Kesh and left a message. Before he disconnected the call, though, he was heard by Dana Geraghty telling another person not to speak before he hung up his phone.

O’Keefe floundered and forgot to disconnect the call entirely then went ahead to discuss his plans to infiltrate Open Society Foundation. He was oblivious of his mistake, and their entire conversation of their plans was recorded. There is an audio of about 10 minutes of their plans.

The real identity of the caller was discovered after he tried to access Dana Geraghty LinkedIn and ended up revealing his identity. The president of the organization was informed of O’Keefe shady plans and was not impressed. Dana Geraghty said of how worried she heard their conversation as the men planned to use her as an entry point to the organization.

O’Keefe undercover operations were discovered before they even began.
