Applications Close 12/31. Apply Early!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! With all of the time and attention the holidays require, we strongly encourage your Lodge to apply for CIP grants now, well before the December 31 deadline. The last thing we want is for you to be alone, in front of a computer, filling out a grant application while your family and friends celebrate the season without you.

The holidays are a busy time for us in and out of the office too. Waiting until the deadline to apply will result in a longer application processing time. Apply today, and save your Lodge the headache!

The new CIP Grants Dashboard is your one-stop for everything you need to apply for grants. Visit to check out the applications and new online Final Reports.

The CIP office is here to help you navigate this grant year. Email or call 773/755-4730 if you have questions or need grant advice.

The Elks National Foundation allocated $12.4 million this year to fund the Community Investments Program. Lodges meet local needs through grants that offer Lodges opportunities to serve the 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.
