The Knights Of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 by Father Michael McGivney, a parish priest in New Haven, Conn. The Knights has grown to one of the country’s largest charitable organizations, with more than 1.9 million members worldwide. Last year, the Knights donated more than $177 million and more than 75 million hours of service to charitable causes.

The Knights of Columbus, animated by its core principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism, has a long history of serving the military. Its celebrated Army Hut program provided hospitality for members of the military throughout Europe during the First World War. Since then, the Knights has helped sponsor war relief activities, education programs for veterans and sponsorship programs for military chaplains, in addition to distributing Catholic spiritual resources for military members and providing a steady stream of volunteers to the more than 135 VA medical centers. More recently, the Knights has partnered with the Gary Sinise Foundation by providing funding to help complete the construction of computer-equipped custom smart homes for severely wounded heroes.
