At the Rochester, NH Elks #1393 Lodge Meeting held on Wednesday, September 8th, 2021, Past Exalted Ruler Jason Parker was recognized for his cumulative donations to the Elks National Foundation. Mr. Parker has reached the $5000 Bronze level in donations. This is a tremendous milestone to reach and the Lodge is extremely grateful and proud of his generosity.
ENF Lodge Chairman Norman Gervais thanked Jason for his efforts and presented him with the Bronze level lapel pin and plaque from the national headquarters of the Elks National Foundation, located in Chicago, Illinois.
The mission of the Elks National Foundation is to help Elks build stronger communities. The Order fulfills this pledge by investing in communities where Elks live and work. Elks help youth develop lifelong skills, send students to college, meet the needs of today's veterans, support the charitable work of the state Elks associations, and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities.
The ENF is able to help Elks build stronger communities thanks to contributions from our generous donors. Since inception, we have received more than $270 million in contributions and bequests. Today, we have more than 100,000 active donors and an endowment fund valued at $825 million.
