A MESSAGE FROM THE KNIGHT FOUNDATION
During this extraordinary and unprecedented situation, we are writing to explain what we’re doing at the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to support grantees and assist with the emergency relief underway in the 26 American communities where Knight operates, including yours. There is much we still don’t know about how COVID-19 will affect the communities where we live, although we know at this point the impact will be profound and that we at Knight will respond by continuing to support informed and engaged communities.
In the 26 American communities where Knight functions, we will join others providing immediate relief. In Grand Forks, we will contribute $200,000 to support the Community Foundation of Grand Forks, East Grand Forks & Region’s Nonprofit Relief Fund. Since we believe it’s critical that communities stay informed, we will also consider ideas to help residents stay informed and connected.
For proposals or questions about support, visit the Community Foundation of Grand Forks, East Grand Forks & Region’s website.
For any other questions about Knight’s efforts in Grand Forks, please email Lilly Weinberg, Knight’s community foundation program director.
