Strategic Initiatives

A new grantmaking framework for the Knott Foundation, our Strategic Grantmaking Initiative is informed by our Board’s desire to engage more directly and deeply in the historically broad work of the Foundation. The new framework is informed by our piloted work in the Out-of-School-Time sector and grounded in research, listening tours, and belief that investing with increased intentionality in Youth Empowerment, Catholic Schools and Workforce Development will not only lead to greater impact, but also greater understanding of community needs and opportunities to innovate.
