The mission of the ENF is to help Elks build stronger communities. We fulfill this pledge by investing in communities where Elks live and work. We help youth develop lifelong skills, send students to college, meet the needs of today's Veterans, support the charitable work of the state Elks associations, and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities.

Since inception, the ENF has contributed more than $500 million toward Elks charitable projects nationwide. Our programs continue to grow each year, allowing Elks to do even more to build stronger communities. Click here for details on all ENF programs.

This year, the ENF allocated nearly $16 million to fund the Community Investments Program, investing in Elks communities through grants for Elks Lodges. Community Investments Program grants offer Lodge's an opportunity to serve our communities in ways that will impact so many lives. We hope to gain the notice of people who want to be part of an organization that’s doing great things.


The Elks National Foundation is able to help Elks build stronger communities thanks to contributions from our generous donors. Since inception, we have received more than $288.7 million in contributions and bequests. Today, we have nearly 120,000 active donors and an endowment fund valued at $723.1 million.
