To establish the Springboard Fund, to support the creation of a series of toolkits that will enable communities to support artists and to develop a network of artist-supportive programs across Knight's resident communities.
To include Knight-community libraries in the creation of a national digital library network
To engage community members in developing and executing projects that increase the vibrancy of neighborhoods and commercial districts along the new Central Corridor Green Line
In St. Paul, a community the Knight brothers entered thanks to the merger with Ridder Newspapers in 1974, we focus on the Central Corridor neighborhoods surrounding the Green Line light rail connection with Minneapolis that opened in 2014.
We hope to balance attracting new residents to the corridor and creating livelier neighborhoods, while encouraging new opportunities for current residents and small business owners.
We are helping create a Central Corridor that boasts thriving business districts that celebrate culture and local diversity, and are welcoming to all.
We invest in civic innovators who help cities attract and keep talented people, expand economic opportunity and create a culture of engagement.
