The McKnight Foundation, an internationally recognized family foundation based in Minnesota, advances a more just, creative, and abundant future where people and planet thrive. Established in 1953 by William and Maude McKnight, this fourth-generation family foundation is deeply committed to advancing climate solutions in the Midwest; building an equitable and inclusive Minnesota; and supporting the arts in Minnesota; neuroscience; and international crop research. The Foundation had approximately $2.9 billion in assets at the end of 2019 and on average grants about $100 million a year.

The McKnight Foundation seeks two program officers for its Arts & Culture program. The program officers will maintain and develop relationships with grantee partners and intermediary funders, manage significant grant portfolios, and actively collaborate with McKnight programs, investments, and operations teams to advance and strengthen the creativity, power, and leadership of Minnesota’s working artists and culture bearers to maximize their contributions toward a more just, abundant, and vibrant world where people and planet thrive.
