Oklahoma Elks State Major Projects
…”A penny a day so they can run and play”!
Our programs are funded by a contribution of $3.65 a year to Oklahoma Elks Major Projects (or double donors – $7.30) and the Earl E. James Endowment Scholarship Program. Your investment goes to work immediately!!!!
Here’s how Elks and non Elks alike can help all Oklahoma Youth and many others less fortunate than ourselves. Contributions will be welcomed by your Lodge Major Projects Director or your Lodge Secretary at any time. You will receive a “365er” sticker to be placed on your membership card. You can be a Double Donor and receive a Double Donor Lapel Pin. Display it with pride as a supporter of your Oklahoma Elks Major Projects.
Earl E Jones Endowment Scholarship Fund & Scholarships
Your Major Projects administers an endowment trust fund named after Past Grand Exalted Ruler, Earl E. James, from Oklahoma City. The Trust is funded by individual $100.00 donations (may be paid in four (4) installments of $25.00) for which you will receive a Past Grand Exalted Ruler Earl E. James Memorial desk set trophy. Any Lodge, organization or individual may make a contribution and receive a desk set.
Only the interest from the trust fund is used to provide The Art Bartunek Scholarships. These scholarships are presented to those who enter the Elks National Foundation “Most Valuable Student Contest” and who have not received a national award.They are also available to the children of Oklahoma Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty.
