Founded on the principles of charity, unity, and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut, and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled, and needy members and their families.


With support, Knights of Columbus is able to impact the lives of countless individuals in need around the nation and around the world. Whether providing aid to those affected by disasters, supporting persecuted Christians, assisting mothers and babies in need, or more, contributions make a profound difference. 100% of donations go directly to those served through charitable programs.


The Knights of Columbus are Catholic men building a bridge back to faith. There is much good and necessary work to be done in this world, and that is what Knights do every day.


The goal is to help men, their families, and their parishes grow closer to Christ through programs and resources. Knights provide opportunities to live and spread the Catholic Faith.


Service and charity are at the heart of the Knights. Founded to meet the needs of immigrants, refugees, and families suffering the loss of a breadwinner, the Knights began as a small service organization and has grown into a worldwide financial and charitable organization.
