About Us

What is the mission of the Knights of Columbus?

The Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 to provide a means by which Catholic men could support the Catholic Church, provide financial protection to protect their families, and engage in works of charity to benefit the less fortunate. Today, its over 1.9 million members make up the largest Catholic lay organization in the world, its insurance program has $100 billion of life insurance in force, and last year Knights donated more than $175 million and volunteered 73.5 million hours of their time to charity. From helping children in need to providing wheelchairs for the physically disabled and support for the intellectually handicapped, from helping to stock food banks to offering top-rated and affordable life insurance to its members, the Knights has been at the service of the communities in which we live and the needy around the world for more than 133 years.
