The Knights of Columbus in Georgia have a long history of service. There are 106 councils in the state of Georgia with over 16,000 members. Although each council provides varied service work in their individual communities, many Knights of Columbus councils support the state’s key programs which include: Camp Inspire, the Ultrasound Initiative, Coats for Kids, Frontline Faith, and the Wheelchair Fund.
The Archbishop Donoghue Award is presented each year at the Gala to exceptional individuals who demonstrate qualities of selfless service and devotion to helping others in need. The award recognizes acts of charity, compassion and contributions that have significantly impacted individuals, families and children living in Atlanta and North Georgia.
