We are a fun and welcoming social and charitable group that strives to make a difference in our community and beyond. We bring people together in all kinds of ways, from our monthly birthday socials, to holiday functions from blood drives to comedy shows, and more. It’s all in the name of fun and fundraising, benefiting Veterans groups, youth programs, school programs, and a variety of local charities.
To inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to recognize a belief in God; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its Members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism; to cultivate good fellowship; to perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization, and to provide for its government, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating that Elks Care and Elks Share.
WHAT WE DO
The Order spends more than $80,000,000 every year for benevolent, educational and patriotic community-minded programs in such fields as benefitting special needs children, sponsoring Elks National Foundation scholarships, scouting, athletic teams, veterans' works, a national "Hoop Shoot" free-throw contest involving more than 3 million children, physical and occupational therapy programs and patriotic programs.
CHARITY, JUSTICE, BROTHERLY LOVE and FIDELITY
