The Anchor Club is an order of Knights of Columbus within the New York City Police Department which began on April 22, 1922 who do charitable support for the widows and children of all deceased members of our great police department.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
Our sole function is to provide for the widows and children of deceased Police Officers both line of duty and natural causes.
WHAT WE DO
The NYPD Police Anchor Club was founded on April 22, 1922 by members of the New York City Police Department who were members of the Knights of Columbus. This Club, Branch number# 1, was the first Anchor Club in America. Members of the Anchor Club have made it their goal to provide annual programs for all the widows and children of deceased members of the NYPD, both line of duty and non-line of duty. The Anchor Club raises funds to provide the above outings, so that we can show the families of our fallen brothers and sisters that they have not been forgotten regardless of race, creed, religion, or membership in the Club.
