Knight Foundation - Diamond Sponsor 2022 FACE Excellence Awards

Thank you to the Knight Foundation for being a 2022 Diamond Sponsor





As social investors, Knight Foundation, supports democracy in America by funding free expression and journalism, arts and culture in community, research in areas of media and democracy, and in the success of American cities and towns where John S. and James L. Knight once published newspapers.


INFORMED AND ENGAGED COMMUNITIES

The Knight brothers believed that a well-informed community could best determine its own true interests and was essential to a well-functioning, representative democracy. The brothers pursued those beliefs, building and running one of America’s largest and most successful 20th century newspaper companies.


The Knights formed Knight Foundation to promote excellence in journalism and the success of the communities in which they worked, in the words of Jim Knight. The company was sold, and the foundation, ever evolving, carries on this work.
