The Knights of Columbus does not have an official physical retail store, but the organization does have a museum that has a gift shop where visitors can buy items. The items there have no sales tax because the Knights of Columbus is a tax-free organization.
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal benefit society. The members of the organization use approximately 45 percent of the total donations at a community level, focusing heavily on youth-related activities. The Knights work with numerous charitable organizations such as the Special Olympics and Habitat for Humanity. The Knights, as the name indicates, are all men and are all of the Catholic faith.
