Welcome to the Sask K of C Charitable Foundation Website
Since 1969, the Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation has dedicated itself to creating, administering and advocating for programs and services that help families in need. Through our many programs, we have focused on assistance for families to overcome obstacles in their lives that threaten their self-sufficiency. Last year, we provided services to many families in Saskatchewan, and touched the lives of countless others through our advocacy and convening efforts.
The Sask K of C Charitable Foundation is extremely pleased and proud of the support offered by our Bishops and priests for the continued growth of the Sask K of C Vocations Endowment Fund. This is best demonstrated by the video that includes all five Bishops of the Province. Please take the time to view this video.
Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids program connects with White Buffalo Youth Lodge to help families in need
Hundreds of winter coats have been distributed to children in Saskatchewan through the Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids program, including a recent delivery underway in conjunction with the White Buffalo Youth Lodge in Saskatoon.
When making the formal presentation, we were fortunate to have Bishop Mark Hagemoen & Bishop Bryan Bayda join us together with representatives from the White Buffalo Youth Lodge. See the story here.
Bishop Mark made reference to his involvement in his homily on Sunday, February 7th, 2021. You can hear his words at the 37-minute mark at https://youtu.be/L2OGwhbE6b8?t=2248
