About Us

Since 1868, we've been serving our communities, our states, and our country.
The works of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks are well known throughout the Country. Organized on February 16, 1868; we are the largest American Benevolent Organization.
The order of Elks is dedicated to service our communities and our Country. We are a charitable order and are dedicated to helping those who are less fortunate and in need.
We are committed to the youth of our communities, Veterans Service, furtherance of Americanism and many other benevolent activities.
Elks are building a better future for our youth. We develop after school programs throughout the U.S., and those young people are partners in the Elks community service programs.
We believe in helping others, but we also believe in having fun. Often we manage to combine the two. Being a part of the Elks means you enjoy doing good works, and enjoy doing them with your family and friends.
