Forks Elks Lodge #2524 has been able to donate to our community, by utilizing grants from Elks National Foundation where every dollar donated we see a positive return of $2.82, to help support the Forks & Clallam Bay’s Food Banks, the STEAM education program at the local elementary school, local veteran’s programs, youth activities including sending girls traveling softball teams to state and national competitions, supporting local cheerleading squads, as well as Children’s Therapy programs, to name a few of the programs we are able to support.
“The mission of the Elks National Foundation (ENF) is to help Elks build stronger communities, fulfilling 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.”
How it Works
ENF 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 $714.7 million.
Thanks to the ongoing support of our donors, the ENF continues to expand on our founder’s vision, mobilizing Elks across the country into a force for positive change.” (www.elks.org)
