KNIGHTS DONATE $185.7 MILLION TO CHARITY IN 2018
The K of C has announced that it gave $185.7 million to charity and donated 76.7 million hours of hands-on service in 2018. Contained in the annual fraternal survey, it demonstrates once again that charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus.
“Regardless of how or who the Knights serve, it’s the chance to help those who are unable to help themselves and to be of assistance to the sick or disabled that is at the heart of what being a Knight is all about,” said Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson.
The Knights’ charitable giving comes from three sources: direct fundraising, the funds raised by thousands of local Knights councils in their communities and from the Knights’ insurance operations.
