The Knight Foundation seeks to fund artistic endeavors that demonstrate the following:

"Artistic excellence: We fund partners who create or present art that has the capacity to transform and inspire. We look for projects that are the result of a serious and rigorous practice, and bring quality, engaging art experiences to communities.
Authenticity and inclusion: We seek to ensure that the arts ecosystem reflects the voices and values of the community. We are looking for artistic partners who reflect the rich diversity of the four cities, promote diversity in arts leadership and make arts experiences more accessible, participatory and engaging.
Technological innovation: We would like to identify ways technology can be a tool for artists to enhance their practice, for organizations to attract and engage audiences, and for consumers to access, experience and support the arts. We fund partners who use technology to achieve these objectives."

The Knight Foundation provides support to organizations and individuals with grants that range from $25,000 to $75,000.
