Celebrate 150 Years with 1,500 Gratitude Grants!

Today, we made history.

The Elks National Foundation is pleased to announce that 1,508 Gratitude Grants have been awarded for the 2017-18 grant year! For the second year in a row, Lodges have smashed Gratitude Grants records, and this year is particularly special. “We are so proud to reach this incredible milestone—it’s a testament to Elks’ commitment to building stronger communities,” said Debbie Kahler Doles, Assistant Director.

Join us as we continue into the next 150 years. Thank you to all of those who have worked so diligently to create meaningful, charitable projects. Your efforts have truly made it a national celebration.

The Elks National Foundation helps Lodges serve their communities by offering $2,000 Gratitude Grants. Lodges are eligible to apply for Gratitude Grants after meeting the National President’s per-member goal for giving to the Foundation in the prior fiscal year. In addition, Lodges that exceed 15 percent membership support last year may be eligible for a $500 bonus.
