About the Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus is the worlds largest charitable organization for catholic men. It was first formed in 1882 by Father Michael J McGivney originally as a fraternal benefit society to help the struggling low-income immigrant Catholics of the time, but has transformed into a service organization dedicated to charitable works, promoting Catholic education, and defending Catholicism world wide. However it has stayed true to its origin and its members have access to the highest rated life insurance company in North America, "Knights Of Columbus Insurance".
The Knights of Columbus now have 1.8 million members in over 14,000 councils in 14 countries. Annually the Knights donate over 150 million dollars and millions of volunteer hours to it's charities and works.
