ENF UPDATE - June 2017
Hi all. Following is information on the final yearly (2016/17) report for Elks National Foundation, aka ENF. Dixie Lodge 1743 donated a whopping $11,173.75 which comes in at $10.632 per capita (per member); way to go members! We didn’t get to claim “The Over 400 members Lodge Plaque” this year though. Provo Lodge beat us at $12.699 per capita. Rats! We’ll get them this year.
Elks in Utah donated $34,832.25 to the Elks National Foundation for the 2016/2017 Lodge year. Utah Elks will get back $88,260.00; this is in scholarships These funds also help support our state’s major charitable project as well as grants to the various Lodges. Dixie Elks Lodge received $17,000 in grants alone. These funds also help provide aid and comfort to hospitalized veterans, support our state’s Drug Awareness Program, Hoop Shoot and educational programs. We are getting a return of $2.534 for every dollar the Foundation received from our State. Let’s see the bank do that.
It is very easy to donate; you can donate on-line at elks.org or stop by the office during office hours. Thank you in advance for the great year we are going to have.
Coming news: an extra $1,500 grant to every Lodge in celebration of The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks 150th year. Also hold the date of November 4 for our annual ENF fundraiser.
