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

What We Look For

Knight focuses its investments on the Gulf Coast in revitalizing the downtowns of Biloxi and Gulfport.

In both Biloxi and Gulfport, we seek to accelerate the cities’ ability to attract and retain talented people – ultimately increasing the region’s population. We invest in both communities’ core vibrancy by supporting projects in smart design, the arts and entrepreneurship.
