ENF UPDATE - February 2019
Hi All, as we get ready to wind down another Elk year, following are a few stats.
As of the most current report, our Lodge has contributed $13,596 this year. We are at $12.72 per capita. You rock members! Thank you so much Elk Members for your generous donations. Thanks to you, we are able do a lot to assist our community.
We have received back $14,800 just in grants that stay in our community and helps fund the Eye Fair, Flying Fish, Hoop Shoot, Veterans, and Millcreek just to mention a few things. Awesome!
On a National level, In 2018-2019, the Elks National Foundation granted $9.6 million to State Elks Associations, in our case for Camp Wapiti. They also apportioned $4.6 million to fund ENF scholarship programs, which ensure a bright future for our Nation’s youth. Elks scholars have many social and service opportunities o connect with the Elks and one another. For more information about our Scholarship programs, go to enf.elks.org/scholarships.
There is still time to donate this Elk year. Just go online to Elks.org/donate. It only takes a few minutes and gets the donation in use quickly.
Hey Officers! For us to qualify as an All American Lodge, all officers need to make at least a minimal donation before April 1. (no foolin’)
