Philanthropic Leadership

In Medicine & The Arts

Our mission is to fulfill the commitment of its founders to provide philanthropic leadership in two principal arenas, medicine and the arts.  It does so by awarding grants for programs, facilities and endowments at distinguished medical, educational and cultural institutions in the United States and internationally. In the medical arena, the Foundation supports institutions at the forefront of biomedical research and clinical care, with an emphasis on healthcare for women.

Who We Are

Since 1978, the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation has been a force in cultural philanthropy, medical research, and health care. Its vision, as Iris Cantor says, is “to support the body and the soul.”
