Knight Foundation Fund

Bringing Communities Together

The Knight Foundation Fund focuses on identifying and working with partners to help Wichita attract and nurture talent, enhance opportunity and foster civic engagement. Investment opportunities through the Fund helps Wichita be more informed and engaged.


The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has created the COVID-19 Connection Fund in partnership with WCF. This fund supersedes previously-planned investments in Wichita from the Knight Foundation Fund for the foreseeable future.

The fund serves as a basis for:

  1. Organizational information needs
  2. Relief support for previous grantees with a focus on downtown revitalization
  3. Technical funding for nonprofits and small businesses within the downtown and surrounding areas. 

The first round of grants has been awarded from this fund. Check back often for updates.
