To advance this project, Elisabeth “Betsy” DeVos donated $22.5 million to it in the year 2010. She was also very creative and ingenious in my views. Upon motivation by the Kennedy center official, she observed that institutions spent dollars training artists but not in training theaters who hire those artists. She says that her gift to the Kennedy center was to help develop human capital.
