Iowa Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation

The Iowa Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation was established in 2009 to ensure permanent funds for religious vocations, Catholic education, persons with intellectual disabilities, promote a culture of life, and assist those less fortunate.

Why Support the Foundation?

The Iowa Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation functions on donations received and asks your consideration when considering a donation to a charity. The Foundation Board also encourages each KofC council in Iowa to offer support to the foundation on an annual basis. Support will enable the foundation to serve Persons with Intellectual Disabilities, support Vocations, Catholic Education, Culture for Life and those less fortunate. When making a donation, please designate which fund you wish to support.
