Knight Foundation invests in cities where the Knight brothers once owned newspapers, supporting both authentically local and relevant national ideas.

What We Look For

In Aberdeen Knight supports the city’s efforts to attract and retain talented people.

We focus on our investments on Aberdeen’s core city vibrancy, better connecting Northern State University to the community – in particular the downtown – through smart design, entrepreneurship and the arts.
