Connecting to the vision and values of our founders
It is my pleasure to announce the publication of our 2014 annual report!
In 2014, we came together to explore and formalize the values and principles behind our founders’ generosity to people and organizations in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Consequently, in addition to stories about the impact of our grant awards, our 2014 annual report features short narratives about Henry and Marion Knott and how they lived their lives. These narratives and the values that they stand for inform our work as a Catholic family foundation committed to nurturing family unity and strengthening the community.
On a more personal note, I would like to remark on the passing of our beloved trustee, Alice Voelkel, at the end of last year. Alice was the third of Henry and Marion Knott’s 13 children. She was a past president of the Knott Foundation and a charter trustee, serving for 37 years on our board. She will be dearly missed.
I hope you enjoy reading our 2014 annual report and learning more about the Knott Foundation’s story and the many wonderful stories behind the grants that we award.
