It's Time for the ID Drive
Here are links to resources to help you run a successful Drive for the Intellectual Disabilities Fund. Monies collected through this drive are distributed back to our community organizations through the local councils. In addition the State Council sponsors the Illinois Special Olympics and provides loans to organizations providing group homes.
Councils can plan their street corner "Tootsie Roll" Drive, an online fund campaign, or another creative fundraiser to support this cause.

Building the Domestic Church
Through the Orderwide Building the Domestic Church initiative, Knights and their families have greater opportunities to participate in a variety of activities that promote the New Evangelization, strengthen our parishes and grow the Order. Knights of Columbus has always been an organization dedicated to the well-being and support of Catholic family life. The family is the first and primary place where we experience and are formed in our Catholic faith. By building upon our current programs and activities, the Knights of Columbus continues to promote the family as a ”domestic church” where husbands and wives, parent and children, grow in their knowledge and practice of the Catholic Faith. In order to perform its important mission of evangelization, each family needs to find support in the sacramental life of the parish.
