Knight Foundation invests in cities where the Knight brothers once owned newspapers, supporting both authentically local and relevant national ideas.


What we look for

In Bradenton, Knight invests in the downtown and riverfront area as a way to attract talented people and better connect those neighborhoods to the surrounding lower-income communities.

We focus our investments in places that connect people of different generations and economic levels, creating a more livable, vibrant urban core.
