    Video Release: The Knott Foundation’s History & Mission

    By Kelly Medinger


    Celebrating 40 years of a family legacy of generosity to strengthen our community

    04a_Henry_and_Marion.jpegWe are pleased to release a short film showcasing the history and mission of the Marion I. & Henry J. Knott Foundation.


    After four decades of grantmaking in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, we wanted to tell the story of who our founders were, why they created the Foundation, how multiple generations of the Knott family are involved in our work today, and how our founders’ vision and legacy continues to strengthen the community in and around Baltimore.

    We would like to thank all of the people who participated in the making of this film, including our grantees Caroline Center, St. Elizabeth School, and St. Francis Neighborhood Center, as well as Archbishop William Lori, Fr. Robert Leavitt, Peter Angelos, and members of the Knott family. 


    It is an honor to steward the legacy of Marion and Henry Knott, and to share our story with you.
