How we started

The DMK Foundation was started by a man's love, loss and hope to save a life.

Derek Mark Kingdeski killed himself on May 29, 2015 and on that date, changed the course of his father's life. Mark Kingdeski made the decision to make a difference. He spent years researching statistics, suicide-based foundations and dedicated many hours and dollars to create a Foundation that can generate money and break social norms to change the future of suicide prevention and... save one life.
