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


What we look for

Knight supports Gary’s work in the downtown and University Park communities as an important driver of talent attraction and retention and economic opportunity.

We invest in this core city vibrancy by supporting entrepreneurship, creative solutions for blight reduction and places that bridge economic divides.
