If you would like to be considered for support by the Elks, kindly fill out the form below.  If we are able to assist, someone will be in touch with you in the near future.  Please understand our budget process can take months to approve funds and appropriate them.  Thanks kindly for your patience and understand no further follow up is required.  Please also understand that due to the sheer volume of requests from a host of worthwhile charities and organizations that we are regrettably unable to fulfill every request.
