Driehaus Foundation

Visually refreshing a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of allĀ Chicagoans.

The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation supports the preservation and enhancement of the built and natural environments through historic preservation in neighborhoods throughout Chicago, encourages quality architectural and landscape design, and conservation of open space. The Foundation also supports arts and culture, investigative reporting and government accountability, and organizations that provide opportunities for working poor people.
