To support GiveMN and The Saint Paul Community Foundation's use of online giving technologies for two years in order to raise their community profile and engage new donors.
To build the Hmong LGBT artist community by creating a studio where artists can create, perform and receive support to creatively share their stories.
To establish the Springboard Fund, to support the creation of a series of toolkits that will enable communities to support artists and to develop a network of artist-supportive programs across Knight's resident communities.
In St. Paul, a community the Knight brothers entered thanks to the merger with Ridder Newspapers in 1974, we focus on the Central Corridor neighborhoods surrounding the Green Line light rail connection with Minneapolis that opened in 2014.
We hope to balance attracting new residents to the corridor and creating livelier neighborhoods, while encouraging new opportunities for current residents and small business owners.
We are helping create a Central Corridor that boasts thriving business districts that celebrate culture and local diversity, and are welcoming to all.
We invest in civic innovators who help cities attract and keep talented people, expand economic opportunity and create a culture of engagement.
