In recent years, the Knights of Columbus have been recognized as a major corporate sponsor to the International Special Olympics with many local councils, including many in Ohio, that sponsor local events.

The primary fundraiser assisting those with developmental disabilities is our annual Measure Up Campaign. This fundraising effort raises approximately $400,000 for statewide and local caring agencies that sponsor a variety of training and support programs. Of the money collected, 20% is used for statewide programs, while 80% is returned to the local councils for donating to their local agencies.

Last year, we gave to the Royalton House, the Doyle Memorial Fund for Learning Disabilities, Lend-a-Hand Industries, and SPICE of St. Mary, Delaware.
