The Walter S. & Lucienne B. Driskill Foundation
Walter S. Driskill, along with his wife, Lucienne, ran a successful importing business for many years. The company, Dribeck Importers, Inc., headquartered in Greenwich, CT, represented and imported Beck’s Beer from Germany. Under the leadership of the Driskill’s, the business prospered.
After the Driskill’s retired and moved from Connecticut to their home in Florida, their interest in philanthropy grew. In particular, the field of medical research attracted their attention.
Since 2009 the Foundation which operates as a private donating Foundation has funded several major medical research undertakings.
The Foundation believes there is a tremendous need for future researchers and increased training of post doctoral and medical degreed individuals in performing research as they move their careers forward. Raising the level of curiosity in young people through educational and innovated programs is a key component to creating the next generation of medical and scientific professionals.
The work of the Foundation is aided by expert consultants who help establish guidelines for acceptable grant awards and to evaluate grant applications.
Some of the recipients of past grants are University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Mayo Clinic, Oregon Health and Science University, Sloan Kettering Medical Center and Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine.
The Driskill Foundation is dedicated to furthering the goals and interests of Mr. and Mrs. Driskill and continuing their legacy.
