In Philadelphia, Knight works to engage both the city’s vibrant arts community and millennial talent while enhancing the city's information infrastructure.
Knight invests in talented millennials as innovators, problem solvers and agents of change. We enhance the city's information infrastructure by ensuring digital literacy and inclusion for all as a way to help Philadelphia cement its role as a knowledge economy leader.
Through funding in the arts, Knight seeks the best ideas that inspire, inform, connect and create a sense of belonging and caring in the city’s 365 neighborhoods.
From 2010 - 2013 we committed $9 million to the arts through Knight Arts Challenge Philadelphia, a community-wide contest to fund the best arts ideas. Our focus on strengthening millennial talent retention and information infrastructure over the next few years, will similarly work to create a truly informed and engaged Philadelphia.
To help sustain healthy communities in a democracy, we aim to increase the ability of individuals to engage in change.
