About our San Jose/Silicon Valley Strategy

Knight Foundation invests in community success by creating a system that finds, nurtures and replicates civic innovations built on robust civic engagement. In San Jose, Knight Foundation is helping make the birthplace of digital and social media one of the great American cities.

We support civic innovations that make Silicon Valley and San Jose leading examples of creative community change. Our investments tap into the region’s creative energy and accelerate its evolution as a center of national significance across sectors.

Through our overall grantmaking, we focus on investments at the intersection of talent, opportunity and place. We are interested in investments that help to attract, retain and harness talent, expand opportunity by increasing economic mobility and supporting entrepreneurship, and explore how places can promote innovation and act as an accelerator for both talent and opportunity.
