Elks National Foundation (ENF)

The mission of the Elks National Foundation (ENF) is to help Local Elk Lodges build stronger communities. ENF is able to help Lodges build stronger communities thanks to contributions from our generous donors. Since inception, ENF has received more than $270 million in contributions and bequests. Today, ENF has more than 100,000 active donors and an endowment fund valued at $812.3 million. This year the Elks National Foundation allocated $14.9 million this year to fund the Community Investments Program. Lodges meet local needs through grants that offer Elks opportunities to serve their community in ways that will raise the Lodge’s profile, energize the membership, encourage former members to return to the fold, and gain the notice of people who want to be part of an organization that’s doing great things.

One of the easiest ways to support ENF is to become a Fidelity Club member, a monthly giving program.

During the 2021-22 Lodge year, the Elks of Colorado donated $271,101.47 to the Elks National Foundation. This year, the Foundation will give back the following:
