Congratulations! You have taken the first step in learning more about the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks which is made up of some of the best people on earth. Everyday our members give the gift of charity to communities and those in need all across our state. Because the Elks exist, and because of our members:

  • Veterans are given support, assistance, and the knowledge that their service means something...
  • Young children are able to receive critical services and surgeries through the Oregon Elks Children’s Eye Clinic…
  • Students across the nation will receive support in their education through our scholarship program...
  • Vulnerable populations including domestic violence survivors and those experiencing homelessness know they are not alone and have support and care...
    • Lodges in communities across Oregon work with local women's shelters, homeless assistance programs and more. Find your local lodge to learn more about what the elks are doing in your community.
  • This Christmas, many families who would normally go without, will find presents under their tree and food on their table through our Christmas Baskets Program...
    • Find your local lodge to learn what Christmas Baskets programs and the holiday charity programs Elks are carrying out in your community this holiday season.
  • Young children will find what teamwork and discipline is all about through our Hoop Shoot Program...
  • Children experiencing hearing and speech problems will gain confidence and tools at Camp Meadowood...

Are we proud to be a part of this organization and the work we do?  Yes! Many great things are made possible...because the Elks exist! And we exist because men and women like you come together, regardless of any differences or beliefs, as members of our great organization to accomplish great things. In addition to our charitable activities, our lodges have social benefits for members as well. Many of our lodges offer amenities such as club rooms, RV parks, and even a few swimming pools. And once you are a member, you would be welcome at nearly every one of the almost 2,000 lodges across the United States. Right here in Oregon we have lodges in over 50 communities. Find the lodge in your community today and take the next step to become a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
