Each year, the Elks National Foundation strives to grant more money back to each state than it received from that state in donations. These grants help fund the state Elks associations' major charitable projects, which include aid for people with disabilities, cancer research, children's hospitals, youth camps, and safe havens for abused families. The state associations also use these grants to fund their "Hoop Shoot," Soccer Shoot, Drug Awareness and scholarship programs, as well as other charitable and philanthropic projects.
This year, the Elks National Foundation will grant $8.7 million to the state Elks associations. To learn how ENF is helping your state, check the stats:
