    Knights of Columbus Alberta Charitable Foundation

    The Alberta Charitable Foundation is the Charity arm of the Knights of Columbus in Alberta.   Since its inception, the foundation has given over $2,400,000 to worthy causes.  The primary focus of our donations is Catholic Education, Children and Youth Charities, Women Needs and Seniors Charities.

    Who We Are

    The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal benefit society that was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. Founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut the order has grown to more than 15,000 local councils and more than 1.8 million members throughout Canada, United States, Mexico, the Philippines, the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Guatemala, Guam, Sipan, Poland and recently Ukraine and Lithuania. The first Knights of Columbus council in Alberta and Northwest Territories was formed in Edmonton on January 5, 1907 with 30 Charter members. Since then the Knights have grown to more than 175 councils and more than 18000. Included in these numbers are several French, Ukrainian and Filipino councils. The Knights of Alberta and Northwest Territories have been active in many worthwhile projects and activities. They are involved in their parishes, communities, and youth programs, support of vocations, education and health systems. Their involvement in community life is a record of outstanding benevolent achievement.

    Knights of Columbus Insurance

    family-icon-circle-grey

    Since our founding in 1882, the primary mission of the Knights of Columbus has been to protect families from the financial ruin caused by the death of the breadwinner. In the beginning, Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney and his fellow Knights “passed the hat” to benefit widows and orphans. From that humble start, the Order has grown to include top-rated life insurance, long-term care insurance and retirement products. With more than $80 billion of insurance in force and a full-time field force of more than 1,400 serving our members and their families, we are proudly fulfilling Fr. McGivney’s vision.
