The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation was established in 1950 as a private foundation independent of the Knight brothers' newspaper enterprises. It is dedicated to furthering their ideals of service to community, to the highest standards of journalistic excellence and to the defense of a free press.
In both their publishing and philanthropic undertakings, the Knight brothers shared a broad vision and uncommon devotion to the common welfare. It is those ideals, as well as their philanthropic interests, to which the Foundation remains faithful.
To heighten the impact of our grant making, Knight Foundation's trustees have elected to focus on two signature programs, Journalism and Knight Community Partners, each with its own eligibility requirements. A third program, The National Venture Fund, supports innovative opportunities and initiatives at the national level that relate directly or indirectly to Knight's work in its 26 communities.
In a rapidly changing world, the Foundation also remains flexible enough to respond to unique challenges, ideas and projects that lie beyond its identified program areas, yet would fulfill the broad vision of its founders.
None of the grant making would be possible without a sound financial base. Thus, preserving and enhancing the Foundation's assets through prudent inves™ent management continues to be of paramount importance.
