Disaster Relief

Iowa KofC Disaster Relief Fund


To make a difference by assisting those less fortunate


To offer a bit of assistance to as many persons as possible who have suffered household loss as a result of disasters, giving preference to Brother Knights first, fellow Catholics second, and assisting others third.

Assistance is not intended to offer complete relief, replace insurance, or take care of health needs, but to offer ready cash to assist in everyday living needs as lives are put back together.

A disaster is identified as, “a damaging or destructive event: an event that causes serious loss, destruction, hardship, unhappiness, or death”. A natural disaster is identified as, “a disaster caused by natural forces: an event caused by natural forces rather than by human action that causes serious loss, destruction, hardship, unhappiness, or death”. For the purpose of this protocol we will be dealing with disasters and natural disasters as defined above and will refer to them as disaster(s).
