Elks Care - Elks Share
Charity. Justice. Brotherly Love + Fidelity. Since 1868
The Massachusetts Elks Association, Incorporated is made up of:
46,000 Member Elks
62 Lodges across the beautiful state of Massachusetts
As Elks, we invest in our communities...
through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life.
Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.
This Fraternal Order was founded to...
Promote and practice the four cardinal virtues of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its members; to quicken the spirit of American Patriotism and cultivate good fellowship."
Our members have been volunteering their personal time for over a century. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is a fraternal organization that started over 150 years ago. It fosters community involvement that will last for years to come.
Elks pledge to never forget our nation's veterans. We put that pledge into action, promising to service our nation's veterans and military members, with a special focus on those in needs. They are constantly encountering struggles that are ever-evolving. We are there to help - that’s where we come in.
