Capital Campaign

Logs of Legacy

The 4th Degree Knights of Columbus and the Fort St. Charles Board of Directors have established a building campaign to restore the Fort St. Charles historical site for future generations.

The restoration of Fort St. Charles, including the fort site and cabins that are made available as a retreat for priests and religious, has been financed entirely through donations and support by K of C 4th degree assemblies and private donators. Work crews volunteer time each spring and fall to maintain and improve the grounds and building for the enjoyment of it’s guests, and visitors. No tax monies have ever been expended and the project is one of the most ambitious historical resotrations undertaken by a private fraternal organization.

The LOGS OF LEGACY campaign needs your help to address the severe deterioration of the Chapel, which is the focal point of the Fort site. This chapel, built in the early 1950’s, has been used not only as a historical maker, but as a place to celebrate mass. The chapel needs to be rebuilt, as the original cement logs are cracking and the foundation is sinking.


100 CEDAR LOGS are needed to complete the chapel project. The Knights are looking for your support through their Logs of Legacy Campaign to purchase logs and other materials.

YOU CAN SPONSOR A LOG! Donations of any amount are appreciated, and campaign level suggestions are listed to help the Knights achieve their 100 log goal. Sponsors will be recognized with a certificate. All donations are 100% tax deductible.

The 4th Degree Knights of Columbus have invested their efforts, time and contributions to this historical site for the past 60 years and are committed to keeping this unique site maintained and available for generations to come.

Consider sponsoring a log in honor, or in memory of someone.
