About

Story

This foundation’s vision for developing children has taken roots in the hearts and minds of a small group of people around the globe as they work together to release communities from poverty.

What started as a short mission trip between a group of young people coming together to make a change, this foundation continues to exist as an agency to provide medical, social, psychological and education needs of children and their families.

Our Impact

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.

The youth of our country have always been important to the Order. It is for this reason the Elks Drug Awareness Education Program was launched to warn primary grade students and their parents of the dangers in drug use. Additionally, every lodge observes June 14th as Flag Day, a tradition which the Elks began in 1907 and was later adopted by the Congress as an official observance.
