The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

In 2017, Knight Foundation launched a major initiative to support the role of strong, trusted journalism. The initiative advances a multi-disciplinary approach to addressing problems of misinformation and declining trust in media by supporting technologists, journalists, academic institutions and others passionate about solving the information challenges of our day. In addition to grantmaking, Knight has partnered with Gallup on a research series to better understand Americans’ evolving opinions of the media and inform solutions .
