What We Do...
We accomplish charitable objectives and fund projects that improve the quality of life in our local Elks communities, and in turn the Elks community as a whole. We pledge never to forget our Veterans. Our programs help special needs children, and our nation’s youth with scholarships and drug prevention programs. We offer countless opportunities for social activities and new friendships.
We are the premier charitable and patriotic organization in the United States. With nearly, 800,000 Members working towards this greater goal, no wonder why the Elks are referred to as the Best People On Earth.
In each of the 172 Veterans Administration Medical Centers there is an Elk committee at work. Literally, thousands of Elks and their families give generously of their time, energy and resources so that the lives of our ill and aging veterans will be enhanced. Hundreds of thousands of hours and like numbers of dollars are devoted to programs that are designed to keep us true to our pledge:
"So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them."
