• Membership Support Bonus: Every Lodge that met the GER's per-member-giving goal in the prior fiscal year is eligible for a $2,000 grant. Lodges in which more than 15 percent of its members donated at least $10 to the ENF in the prior fiscal year (per the ENF Membership Support Report) will be eligible for a bonus of $500. This bonus will be automatically added to your Lodge's Gratitude Grant application.
• Fidelity Club Bonus: Every Lodge that met the GER's per-member-giving goal in the prior fiscal year is eligible for a $2,000 grant. Lodges now have a goal for Fidelity Club membership. Reach the goal, which is based on 5 percent of the prior year's donors, and the Lodge will be eligible for a $500 bonus on its Gratitude Grant. Check out the Fidelity Club Goal Progress Report to track progress toward the goal and the Fidelity Club honor roll to see who is a member of the club.
• Chair Challenge Bonus: This opportunity specifically recognizes Lodges that have strong, broad-based fundraising programs. Lodges can earn an additional $500 for their Gratitude Grant by attaining a score of 550 points or better in the prior year’s Chair Challenge. (For example, achieve 550 or better in FY2023 to be eligible for the $500 bonus in FY2024.) Visit the Chair Challenge Guidelines to learn more and to check your Lodge's current score.
Donating before the fiscal year deadline is also important to keep up consecutive year giving streaks for Loyalty Club status.
If you’re interested in making a donation before this fiscal year ends, donate online at enf.elks.org/MyLodge or by clicking the heart in the upper right corner of the website.
Thank you for helping us build stronger communities. We can’t wait for next year.
