Who are the Elks?
Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.
Community Investments Program
The Elks National Foundation's Community Investments Program invests $8.68 million in Elks communities through Lodge grants that help Elks meet local needs. In 2011-12, Elks across the country volunteered more than 230,000 hours using CIP grants.
Each donor, each gift, makes our charitable mission possible. Our donors’ support provides youth with a healthy beginning, honors veterans and funds projects that improve the quality of life in local communities.
