Scholarships Each year the Elks National Foundation provides more than .65 million in college scholarships to graduating seniors.
Indeed, the flow of money and goods moves in the opposite direction: the Elks donated to the government the first veterans hospital; they contribute regularly to schools and police and fire departments; and they assist the young and the needy throughout this great nation.
How could this powerful force have come into being?
The Most Valuable Student scholarships are open to any graduating high school senior.
Legacy Awards and Emergency Educational Grants are available only to the children of Elks.

Annually the BPO Elks give more than 0 Million in this fashion, and the Order ranks as one of the largest private providers of college scholarships in the nation.
The Elks have created a quiet network of good deeds that has profoundly changed millions of lives for the better, yet there is little public awareness of the impact of their vital work. Quite simply, the Elks have rarely sought recognition; nor have they gone to the general public with fund-raising efforts nor received monies from any level of government.
