It is a registered charity and seeks to uphold the dignity of Knight Bachelor and the rights of the degree of knighthood at all times, to register every duly authenticated knighthood, and to advise members on matters relating to the degree....Its charitable objectives include the relief of poverty, the advancement of education, support for hospitals, the elderly, and the needy. A particular objective is to encourage Knights Bachelor within the Commonwealth to develop understanding and cooperation between the citizens of the Commonwealth."
