ENF UPDATE - April 2019
Elks National Foundation (ENF) debuted another Grant offering for Lodges. This one is for $2,000 and is to shine a light on two important issues, Family Literacy and Homelessness among our nation’s veterans. These issues face nearly every community, including ours. You can find more information about the new “Spotlight Grant” at Spotlight Grant Tool kit.
Here is an early “Hold The Date”. On Saturday, October 5, ENF will hold their annual fundraiser. This year we are going to have a western theme dinner and dance. More info to follow as we get closer.
We are also having our “Adopt A Purple Pig” contest. This is an easy way to donate, and you can win a great prize by having the heaviest Purple Pig.
Our donations are a little low this year, and if you are looking for a good 501-C3 to donate to, consider ENF. The Foundation gives us our Grants, many of our Scholarships, all our Drug Awareness Materials and all ENF Materials. Remember, you pick where you want your donations to go, i.e.: Veterans, Scholarships, Hoop Shoot, drug Awareness and so on.
Thank you to all whom support this wonderful organization. Donate online at Elks.org/donate. It only takes a couple of minutes, and your donation goes right to work. Plus, it all comes back to our communities.
