You Can Now Donate to Our Council Online!




From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are men of faith and men of action.


In 2015, the Knights of Columbus set a new all-time record for the 17th consecutive year. Our charitable donations increased from 2014 by more than $1.5 million to a new total of $175,079,192. In addition, we achieved our highest level of charitable service in 2015, volunteering more than 73.5 million hours of service. The number of service hours contributed by Knights rose in 2015 by more than a million over the previous year’s total.


Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national and international projects. From international charitable partnerships with Special Olympics, and other local charities,.


"We are answering Pope Francis’ call to go to the peripheries,” Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said. “We can reach half way around the globe to help those in need and we can reach to our neighbor next door. And we do that every day. That makes us witnesses to the faith."


Please consider helping us in our local community by making a online donation safely and and securely by clicking the "Donate" button below.
