On March 1st, with the Knight Foundry Corporation actively assisting, the City of Sutter Creek submitted a Round 3 grant application to the California Cultural and Historical Endowment (CCHE). This application requested funds to help cover much of the cost of acquisition, environmental mitigation, and related renovation projects. In response to the application, on August 23rd, the CCHE board reserved $870,750 in matching funds for Knight Foundry, a tremendous boost to our fundraising campaign.
The Knight Foundry Corporation is dedicated to securing historic Knight Foundry in Public Trust ownership, and to renovating and operating this national treasure.
