The Colorado Knights of Columbus Charities Fund’s fundamental purpose is to unite members in the Colorado Knights of Columbus in a closer bond of fraternity and fellowship while promoting, protecting and improving vital causes, parishes and the communities around us.

The Colorado Knights of Columbus State Charities contains a number of funds that are designated specifically for enumerated programs. You have two options for your generous gift: 1) If you do not choose to allocate the funds to any specific line item, the Charities Corporation will use your gift where it is needed or 2) You can choose to allocate your gift towards a specific cause.

The potential areas you can choose to allocate your donation, if you so choose, are below:

  • Aid and Support After Pregnancy (ASAP) - ASAP describes the Knights of Columbus’ efforts to support pregnant women, mothers and their babies by serving pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes. Through ASAP, for every $500 a council or assembly donates to a qualifying non-profit pregnancy resource center or maternity home, the Supreme Council will issue a $100 grant to the same qualifying organization. Pregnancy resource centers provide assistance to nearly 2 million clients each year. These organizations, and the women and babies they serve, are in dire need of financial contributions, donations of material goods, and other volunteer services. Despite the essential services pregnancy resource centers provide to women and their new children, 90% of funding for pregnancy centers is raised locally and 80% of centers receive no government funding.
  • Deacon Support Program - Supporting the Formation and continuing education of those who are Deacons or becoming a Deacon.  For those in formation and discerning formation, there are costs for books, continuing education expenses, etc…
  • Father McGivney Fund - The Father McGivney Fund was formed to aid and support the growth of vocations in Colorado by providing emergency financial support to clergy, religious, seminarians and novices
  • Human Trafficking - Protecting those that are the most vulnerable and abused by aiding the victims, places that house them, businesses that help them and professionals that work to heal them
  • Parish Restoration Fund - Funds are collected and distributed by Colorado Diocese and go to fixing/updating/improving parishes that request the funds after we receive the request that includes the bishop’s approval.
  • People with Intellectual Disabilities - Supporting people and businesses that are working to better the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
  • Relief Fund - Funds collected for the times that our state experiences natural disasters (i.e. fires, floods, tornados, etc...), or those experienced by other State Council jurisdictions, or that of a request by the Supreme Council for disaster relief to other identified areas of the world.
  • Ultrasound Initiative - The KofC purchase ultrasound machines and place them in pregnancy alternative centers
