What We Do
The Order spends more than $200,000,000 every year for benevolent, educational, and patriotic community-minded programs. These donations directly benefit physically disabled children, sponsor Elks National Foundation scholarships, scouting, athletic teams, and veterans’ works. Additionally, these funds support physical, patriotic, and occupational therapy programs, along with a national “Hoop Shoot” free-throw contest involving more than 3 million children.
The youth of our country have always been important to the Order. For this reason, the Elks Drug Awareness Education Program was launched to warn primary grade students and their parents of the dangers of drug use. Additionally, every lodge observes June 14th as Flag Day, a tradition which the Elks began in 1907 and was later adopted by Congress as an official observance.
