What If Kids Weren't Curious Anymore?


Welcome to Innovation


Mindful of the serious life challenges currently being faced by young people in the Chicagoland area, The Driskill Foundation seeks to shine a light, pave a path, and help create opportunities that might not otherwise exist for discovery, personal development, and lifelong success. We support programs that ignite curiosity in STEM and the arts as an avenue to discover their passion and dreams for a brighter tomorrow. 

Using funds generously provided by our donors, we identify organizations best qualified to turn financial resources into impactful programs and initiatives, that demonstrate real, measurable results in support of this mission. Simply put, we strive to be the very best at connecting available resources with opportunities to stimulate curiosity that will have a real, lasting, positive impact on our young people.
