The Elks National Foundation

      The Elks National Foundation is an independent non-profit foundation governed by a seven member board of trustees.  The elks National Foundation was established in 1928 and its mission is to help build stronger communities.  We fulfill this pledge by investing in communities where Elks live and work.

     We provide tomorrow’s leaders, our youth, with a healthy beginning; honor the Elks’ pledge to never forget our veterans; help the state Elks associations accomplish their charitable objectives; and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities.
