The McKnight Foundation



The McKnight Foundation was established in Minneapolis during 1953 by William L. McKnight and his wife, Maude L. mcKnight.


The foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for present and future generations through grantmaking, coalition-building, and encouragement of strategic policy reform.



The foundation makes grants in support of children and youth, region and communities, the environment, the arts, neuroscience research, and selected international efforts.
