Knight Foundation352,000.009--Communitieshttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/4672-- Grant period: 12/07/2009 - 11/30/2012; goal: To create a digital platform for engaging the seven-county region in development and use of greenways and green spaces they share To encourage support for creating more livable communities, this grant will develop an information hub for the seven-county region of southeast Michigan that will inform residents about how to be good stewards of the area’s natural resources. The “GreenSpace” project will bring together all the available information on the topic – benefiting anyone from a family searching for a place to hike or bike, to a resident advocating for more parks and recreation and a government official developing land use policy. The hub will encourage users to contribute content and share links to information, helping to nurture leadership and action on important issues.

Knight Foundation750,000.008--Communities, Artshttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/5626-- Grant period: 10/01/2012 - 09/30/2017; goal: To support cross-cultural understanding through a forum that focuses on the role of arts in building and engaging communities. The Arab American National Museum, the only one if its kind in the United States, uses arts and culture to break down racial and ethnic barriers in Southeast Michigan. The museum produces Detroit’s annual Concert of Colors, a free festival of world music, which once included a forum on “Community, Race and Culture” that explored the role of arts in building and engaging communities. Knight funding will restore the forum and help rebuild the Cultural Exchange Network of 50 arts organizations that originally facilitated the Concert of Colors. The Community Foundation for Southeastern Michigan will create the Knight Detroit Community Building Arts Fund, to support the Arab American National Museum's arts programming promoting tolerance and diverse cultures.
Knight Foundation2,250,000.004--Artshttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/5628-- Grant period: 10/01/2012 - 09/30/2017; part of the challenge: Knight Arts Challenge 2019; goal: To experiment with new programs that will take the institute’s world-class art collection out of the museum and into the community As museums seek meaningful ways to engage with the public, the Detroit Institute of Arts found a winning model with its Inside|Out program, which brings high-quality reproductions of masterpieces from the museum’s collection to the streets and parks of metro Detroit. The program, which recently completed its third year and is sponsored by Knight Foundation, has fostered concerts, poetry readings, talks, tours and art installations, as well as a sense of pride in the community and ownership of the museum. Now the institute wants to build on that success by experimenting with a range of programs to inspire creativity, knowledge of art and the museum’s collection, and a dialogue about local arts and culture. The Community Foundation of Southeastern Michigan will create the Knight Detroit Museum Fund, in support of increased community engagement using new models at the Detroit Institute of Arts, to take the art out of the museum and into the community.

Since 1998, the competition has aided and developed more than 200 young classical musicians of color, clearly demonstrating the incredible diversity of talent and artistic excellence that exists within Black and Latino communities. Knight Foundation’s funding will support all aspects and activities of the Sphinx Competition, including the Competition's Honor and Final concert performances that reach over 3,000 in live audiences and 2 million in broadcast audiences annually.
