Rema Hort Mann Foundation was founded in 1995 to carry forward the passion and strength of Rema Hort Mann by providing direct support to cancer patients during treatment and emerging artists at a critical juncture in their careers.
To carry out these goals, RMHF offers 3 Grants in New York City, including unrestricted Emerging Artist Grants, by nomination only, and Artist Community Engagement Grants, to promising emerging artists who demonstrate an ability and commitment to making substantial contributions in the arts.
While undergoing cancer treatment, Rema discovered an entire community of cancer patients going through similar experiences. As a result, she sought to provide comfort and support to those who did not have family to help them through their treatment. The PH QOL Cancer Grant is our way of commemorating Rema’s life and upholding the passions closest to her heart.

To date, RHMF has awarded over 600 Emerging Artist and Artist Community Engagement Grants and over 2,000 Quality of Life Grants to cancer patients totaling over $8 million.
Through the generosity of individual donors, artists, galleries, and organizations, RHMF continues to increase its impact in the arts.
Every dollar that you give goes directly to RHMF’s grant programs. The RHMF Board covers the operating costs of the foundation.
Your generous gift to RHMF will transform into grants for
Artists and cancer patients.
