Fields of Interest


The KMD Foundation seeks to provide opportunities for students in the Czech Republic to expand their knowledge and experiences and to encourage the development of strong leadership skills in their scholastic fields of interest.

The Foundation currently manages and supports the Regina’s Hope Medical Program that offers a unique opportunity for students of medicine in the Czech Republic to gain research and clinical experience in state-of-the-art hospitals in Chicago, USA. Under this program, qualified students are encouraged to broaden their formal education, to learn about professional practices outside of the Czech Republic, to share them with their peers, and to build international collaboration.


The Foundation supports organizations and projects that aim to expose Czech art and culture to the global community. Furthermore, support is provided to programs that encourage the revival of local traditions and the reconnection of Czech communities in the Czech Republic and the United States with their historical and cultural roots.

Community Development

The KMD Foundation aims to proactively strengthen personal and community growth development of Czech public officials, professionals, and other community leaders in the Czech Republic and the United States through innovative activities that stimulate creative learning, working and problem solving.

The KMD Foundation (The Kristyna M. Driehaus Foundation) is a not-for-profit corporation organized under
the Illinois General Not For Profit Corporation Act of 1986 and is a qualified under IRS code section 501 (c) 3.
