As of January 1, 2016, we have 650 chapters and almost 20,000 members in 29 countries.
According to the By-Laws, our purposes and goals are to:
for the mutual assistance, enjoyment, entertainment, education,
physical, mental and social benefit of its members and the general public.
Many Blue Knights work long and hard to raise money for various charities. Especially near to our hearts is helping children. Make-a-Wish Foundation, Toys for Tots, D.A.R.E., and Concerns of Police Survivors are some examples of our favourites.
As of June 2016 Blue Knights have donated over $17.8 million (USD) to charities across the world.
We're the good guys!
The Blue Knights is a family fraternity. Spouses and children often accompany our members to the various rides and functions. When travelling, local members can provide assistance, directions and sometimes a place to stay. We are truly a family.
