Seeking Connectivity and Inclusivity in Downtown Bradenton

The Knight Fund of Manatee Community Foundation supports the downtown and riverfront area to attract talented people and better connect neighborhoods to the surrounding lower-income communities. They focus on connecting people of different generations and economic levels, creating a more livable, vibrant urban core. They are seeking investments in nonprofit organizations that: 

  • Better connect the community to key assets such as universities, businesses, or nature.
  • Enhance the public realm to be more connected and vibrant.
  • Break barriers between residents and decision makers; engaging underrepresented communities in civic life and leadership roles. 

To share your organization’s ideas that align with these key priorities, contact MCF Community Investment Officer Simone Peterson at by June 3, 2022.
