About the Position

ENF Grants Coordinators can access online Community Investments Program grant applications but are not allowed to perform any other secretarial functions. This is a purely functional position, and it does not automatically infer any authority upon the person appointed. It is assumed that all grant projects are discussed and decided upon by the Lodge as a whole.

This person should be computer savvy and involved with CIP Grants. The Coordinator must be a member of the Lodge, and must be approved by the Exalted Ruler. Lodges may appoint more than one Coordinator, or change the person assigned to this role at any time throughout the year.

How to Appoint

The Lodge Secretary should sign into CLMS. From the homepage, click the CLMS2Web Staff tab at the top, and then click on the link labeled Appoint ENF Grants Coordinator. There will be a drop-down menu with all the members of your Lodge with Elks.org accounts. Select the name of the person you'd like to appoint, and then click the button labeled Appoint New Grants Coordinator. The appointment will be immediate, and the new Coordinator will have full ENF Grant access privileges the next time they sign on using their elks.org user name and password.

Instructions for Grants Coordinators

Once appointed the ENF Grants Coordinator, you will be able to access your Lodge's grant applications. First, sign into elks.org using your user name and password. Then, visit the CIP Grants Dashboard at elks.org/cip/dashboard. From there, you will be able to see all the grant applications currently available to your Lodge. Select the application you'd like to complete to get started.
