Elks members come from every walk of life & join together for common goals including supporting our Veterans, our youth and our local communities. With over 9,000 members in 37 cities throughout Oklahoma, the odds are good that you know or have met an Elk.
We realize that charity starts at home, which is why Oklahoma Elks are very active in our local communities. We work hard to put the "Benevolent" into the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
"So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them." Oklahoma Elks participate in many different programs for our Veterans.
The Elks provide scholarships, drug awareness information, the National Hoop Shoot Contest, youth programs and more.
The Oklahoma Past Exalted Ruler Association will award one grant annually in the amount of $500. All Lodges in Oklahoma are eligible to reply. Target groups for the grant should be youth‐oriented.
The Officers of the Oklahoma PER Association will accept applications from the Lodges in their District until the ER/Secretary Clinic in March. The applications will be evaluated by the Oklahoma PER Association Officers. The winning Lodge will be notified and the Grant Check will be awarded at the State Convention in April.
