The mission of the Elks National Foundation is to help Elks 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.
Like all Elks, the Foundation values the belief that charity is the greatest of all virtues and that by sharing and giving we have the power to replace sorrow and despair with hope and confidence. Donations to the Foundation help us fund programs that match our cornerstone values of knowledge, integrity and community.
The Elks support a variety of charities both local and nationally.
- Elks National Foundation (ENF) – Helping the Elks build stronger communities.
- California-Hawaii Elks Major Project, Inc. (CHEMPI) – “A Coin A Day So They Can Walk, Talk, See and Play”
The Elks participates in a variety of programs to help veterans and youth in our community.
