The Grand Exalted Ruler, Ron Hicks announced the new per-member-giving goal at the 2015 Elks National Convention. The goal has increased to $4.65—that’s a 5 cent increase—but well below the level that members have been reaching in the past few years. Please update your fundraising goals! Check the Reports and Standings to view your Lodge’s current per-member-giving totals.
