General Contribution Fund
Unrestricted gifts to our General Contribution Fund enables us to provide aid quickly to the areas that need the support the most. Gifts to this fund support all of the initiatives that our Knights of Columbus Council helps with in our community.
COVID Assessment & Emergency Relief Fund
Our Council has a long and storied history of hosting successful in-person fundraising events for our parish and community. When scenarios such as the current pandemic hit, we may not be able to hold these annual in-person events to raise the much needed contributions. Any direct contribution to this fund will go towards supplementing these charitable works during the current and any future emergency situation that comes up.
Leave No Neighbor Behind Fund
The Knights work to support the needs of those who are affected by challenging situations. Your donation will empower our efforts to meet the unique needs that we are experiencing today as presented by our Knoxville community as well as adapt to new needs as they are identified.
Sacramental Gifts Fund
The sacraments stand as the most significant events in the life of the domestic church. The Knights of Columbus will be there to support our parish families during these essential moments of their encounter with Christ. These contributions are currently designated to the funding of the new Baptismal Font at the Cathedral.
Coats for Kids Fund
The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during the winter season. Contributions to the program allow the ability to purchase additional coats to supplement those that had been donated during our collection initiative.
MR Drive Fund
The Tootsie Roll Drive has been an annual donation program that has touched and helped people with physical and intellectual disabilities since the 1970's. In addition to our public collection initiative, contributions made here also help benefit those with disabilities by providing more resources to live a happy life.
Vocation Support Fund
Through this program, the council and parish families raise funds to help support the seminarians in our area.
Knights Cup Tournament Fund
The Knights of Columbus works hard to help change public hearts about abortion by showing love for both mother and child before and after birth. Our council holds an annual Lacrosse Tournament for schools around the state to gather donations for our local Catholic Charities Pregnancy Support Center.
Father & Daughter Dance Fund
The council's annual Father Daughter Dance provides families a wonderful social and valuable teaching experience for everyone. Contributions and the net proceeds go to support future dances and other charitable works within the council.
Food Drive Fund
In helping our community, our council helps a few different organizations, such as Ladies of Charity and Hope's Kitchen, collect necessary food supplies to help feed those who are less fortunate. The contributions here would aid us in this worthy endeavor.
