About

Elks Care, Elks Share. Are YOU an Elk?

Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, gym or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up. Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet need, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.

We are...

A fraternal order with hundreds of thousands of members and a 150+ year history.

A network of nearly 2000 lodges in communities all over the country.

A generous charitable foundation that each year gives millions in scholarships, an inspiration to youth, a friend to veterans and more.

Members

No matter where you go in the country, an Elks Lodge is right around the corner. With more than 770,000 members and 1,800 Lodges nationwide, Elks are providing charitable services that help build stronger communities.

How to Join

To be eligible for membership in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, you must be a citizen of the United States over the age of 21 who believes in God.

  • review rating 5  We had a short but very nice visit at the Franklin Elks Lodge this past Winter. They were kind enough to let us park our RV there for two nights. The Franklin Elks is a beautiful and well designed facility. Wonderful people there in Franklin. We Came all the way from Port Angeles Washington We stopped at many Elks Clubs along the way and of course this was the newest and had tons of amenities. My wife and I sure appreciated all of the hospitable and friendly folks we met at various Elks along the way. God Bless them all! Thank you. Terry and Carol Roszatycki
