Throughout their lives as artists and educators, Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason have dedicated themselves to the promotion of visual arts as a tool for education and cultural expression. To this purpose, they created their foundation in 1998 with the stated mission of providing assistance to non-profit organizations engaged in furthering these activities.


Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason decided to form their foundation in the late 90s to provide philanthropic assistance and fund projects affiliated with the arts and art education. Since then, the Foundation has awarded grants to more than 120 organizations.

Who We Are

The Foundation is comprised of painters Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason, their active studios, and their Board of Directors dedicated to furthering the present and future legacy of their founders’ mission.
