Headquarters Office Closed

COVID-19: On March 20, 2020, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced a shelter-in-place order for the entire state. Since the Elks National Foundation and BPOE headquarters are in Illinois, this affects our office. The office will be closed until April 7.

We will continue to work remotely; however, this will affect our mail and donation processing.

If the Lodge needs to send in a refund to get in grant compliance, contact LodgeGrants@elks.org to discuss next steps.

Lodges should NOT send donations through the mail. Instead, submit donations electronically as outlined here.

Donations received through the mail by March 31 will count toward the current fiscal year, but they will not be processed until our staff is able to. This means that the Gratitude Grant qualification could be delayed.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this difficult planning environment.
