The Kellner Family Foundation

In the beginning, we sought to help children on whom fortune did not smile; today, we sponsor long-term educational projects intended for elementary school students and their teachers, high school and university students, as well as postgraduates. We also provide grants to Czech researchers and research teams.

The Kellner Family Foundation to establish – instead of school – an open-air gallery in Prague...

The Kellner Family Foundation – the philanthropic foundation of Renáta and Petr Kellner – has outlined a new plan for the former Hotel Praha in Prague. The Kellner Family Foundation will dedicate part of the grounds to a new open-air gallery for the benefit of the public, as well as building a new public playground. As part of the plan, the nearby Hadovka mansion, the former Canadian Embassy, will be turned into a healthcare institution. The project replaces prior plans to build the Open Gate II school on the site.
