Knight Foundation

Schedule a conversation with Koven J. Smith, Senior Director/Arts, via Calendly.

The Knight Foundation believes that great art attaches people to place and to each other. Investing in arts and culture is central to Knight’s effort to build stronger, better informed and more engaged communities, the foundation of a healthy democracy. 

We fund artists and arts organizations that create, present and provide access to artistic excellence and inspire engagement. We invest across genres and increase the impact of our work by focusing funding in the eight communities (Miami, Macon, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Akron, Detroit, St. Paul, and San Jose) where Knight has offices.

Our investments focus on:
  • Authenticity and Inclusion: We fund to accelerate trends and activity naturally occurring in each community and support artists and organizations that reflect the diversity of the communities where we work. 
  • Development of Talent and Organizations: We seek to increase the capacity of artists and the sustainability of arts organizations.
  • Transformation: We invest in the use of technology to create new ways to explore and make art, to express culture, and to reach, expand and engage diverse audiences.
