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 Foundation’s Lexington work focuses in the downtown area, using place to accelerate the growth of young talent, entrepreneurs and creatives.

In Lexington, we look for ideas to reimagine and connect spaces that attract new residents to downtown to create a thriving economic and cultural ecosystem.
