    Newman Fund

    The Illinois Knights of Columbus dedicated themselves to the support of the Newman Catholic Campus Ministry in 1917 when they began supporting the Newman Foundation at the University of Illinois. In 1959, the Illinois State Council allocated funds for other schools throughout the state and today, we as Knights in Illinois, support more than 800,000 students enrolled in Illinois Colleges and Universities.

    If we are to continue to evangelize our Catholic faith on the campuses of Illinois, and provide faith-based places and resources for colleges students, we need your help.

    Keep those Newman Donations coming in. The response has been good, but we can do better! Our goal this year is $5 per member. Don’t wait donate today by clicking the button below.
