The Emily Davie and Joseph S. Kornfeld Foundation was established by Emily Davie Kornfeld in 1979. The Foundation was the principal beneficiary of her estate upon her death in 1989.
Mrs. Kornfeld’s personal philanthropy supported medical research in the control and treatment of pain, as well as efforts directed at enhancing individual choice in medical treatment and dying.
In the last decade the Foundation’s interests have covered bioethics, palliative care, medical research and education.
Beginning with our 2011 Annual Report, the Kornfeld Foundation will no longer be publishing and mailing a print version of our Annual Report. Our web site will serve as and host our official Annual Report and will be updated annually. Please see our Program Areas and Grants to learn more about our grantmaking.
