Councils Major Fundraising Programs


Ohio Charities CampaignThe Ohio Charities Super Cash Bonanza Campaign is sponsored by the Ohio State Council Knights of Columbus. Each year, councils from all around the state of Ohio sell chances for great cash prizes. Part of the proceeds from the council sales at $5.00 per ticket are returned to the State Council to pay for the raffle and promotion, but a major portion of the sales based on the amount of tickets sold by members are returned to the council for their own charitable efforts. Almost every year that our council has sold tickets, we have achieved around 10 tickets per member, allowing us to receive the maximum rebate of approximately $4.00 per ticket sold. All money raised in the Charities Campaign is distributed through our Activities program and other Charities.


Measure Up CampaignThe annual Measure Up Campaign is one of our council's most important activities. Each spring members spend a weekend soliciting donations from shoppers at area Kroger's and from parishioners at St. Joseph parish to help our order's special cause, children with mental retardation. Member's of our council put in many hours of work for this activity, and they all enjoy the time well spent helping our special children. Past donations from our council have been made to the Three Rivers School Special Education Fund and Margaret Rost School. For the past several years a new record has been set with this collection. Last years total of $800.00 down $1,300 from last year due to Krogers not allowing us to collect.
 


Lenten Fish Fry

The Harrison councils annual Lenten Fish Fry is one of our council's newest fundraising programs. Profits from the Fish Fry benefit our council's Catholic High School Scholarship Program, The event starts on Ash Wednesday and continues every Friday during Lent and requires a huge amount of help and hours from our council members, K of C Ladies Auxiliary ,Youth groups and volunteers. This event truly reflects the four core principles of our order Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.  2009 marked our first annual Lenten Fish Fry & was a great success. As we begin 2017 we are looking forward to an even more successful year. 


Pennies For Heaven Collection


Pennies for Heaven program is a State Council Activity that benefits the local Diocesan Vocation Offices. Councils pass a jug at meetings and members donate their spare change. At the end of the fraternal year, the councils pool their money and a donation is made to the Cincinnati Vocations.
