Austin Chapter Featured Charities
Various Austin Area Charities come to the Chapter to present their mission to the councils and assemblies in the Austin Area. This is a place where we will include links to qualifying charities that have presented to the Chapter for your organization to consider supporting.
Note the Chapter does not normally support individual charities outside of the Clergy Appreciation Dinner, the Chapter is a place to get the word out to the Councils and Assemblies.

Upcoming Opportunities for Councils to Support
My name is Sr. Martin Thérèse and I am a Dominican Sister of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist currently teaching at St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School in the Diocese of Austin, Texas.
I am organizing a pilgrimage to Washington D.C. for the upcoming March for Life in January. I currently have 47 students signed up to go. The cost is $600/person. We have some who would really like to attend but are unable to afford the cost.
I am attaching a rough itinerary to this e-mail so you can see the preliminary details of our trip.
I am hoping that the Knights of Columbus might be able to offer us some financial assistance enabling those who want to go but can’t afford it the means to be able to join the hundreds of thousands of others in DC to support life.
If there is someone specifically whom I should contact or have those who need the help to contact, I would be grateful for any direction you could give me.
I am most grateful to you and for the work of the Knights of Columbus. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
