You Believed.
— Steve Santosuosso, 2018-2019 President of ME Elks State Association

The Massachusetts Elks Association, Incorporated is made up of:

  • 42,000 Member Elks

  • 61 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.

Since 1868, millions and millions of Americans have joined the Elks. Find out why by watching this video!
