Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world’s foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.
The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

The North Central Arkansas Foundation for the Arts and Education, located in Fairfield Bay, Arkansas, works to achieve its mission through professional development programs, advocacy projects and collaborative initiatives among artists, arts organizations and educators.
We engage teachers, administrators, artists, cultural organizations and parents in strengthening quality arts education throughout a region that is known for its cultural and educational richness.
Learning and participation in music, dance, theater, and the visual arts are profitable to the development of our children and our communities.
Through advocacy, partnerships, and professional development, North Central Arkansas Foundation for the Arts and Education strives to provide and secure more resources and support for arts education.
The North Central Arkansas Foundation for the Arts and Education recognizes the importance of arts learning both within schools (in non-arts and arts classrooms) and beyond school walls in the community (art centers and museums).
Some NCAFAE participants have a particular interest in educational partnerships among schools and arts institutions.
Within these contexts, core learning in the programs address arts-related issues in educational practices.
Beyond that, NCAFAE participants expand their interests around the arts in education.
Art forms in which NCAFAE participants express interest include visual art, writing, drama, dance, and music.
