Here in Florida, the 56,000 men and women of the Elks in 100 Lodges from the panhandle to the Keys are enjoying the camaraderie, compassion, community outreach, and support that are all part of being an Elk.
 

In Florida alone, Elks provide millions of dollars in assistance to the neediest among us:

  •  The Army of Hope provides assistance to veterans and military families
  • The Elks Children’s Therapy Program brings mobile, in-home therapy services to children across the  state
  • The  400-acre Elks Youth Camp in Umatilla builds character while  simultaneously inspiring Florida’s youth by teaching respect  and responsibility

As a member of our order, you will be supporting all of these programs while enjoying all of the benefits of being an Elk.

The mission of the Elks National Foundation  is to help Elks build stronger communities. We fulfill this pledge by  investing in communities where Elks live and work. We provide tomorrow’s  leaders, our youth, with lifelong skills; we honor the Elks’ pledge to  never forget our veterans; we help the state Elks associations  accomplish their charitable  objectives and fund projects that improve  the quality of life in local Elks communities.

Of  everything that the Florida Elks do, perhaps nothing is more important  than our work with the state’s youth. Sowing the seeds of accomplishment  and commitment through our Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services and  Florida Elks Youth Camp programs, children are given the opportunity to  grow and learn beyond their wildest  imaginations.
 

Known to  Florida Elks as the Harry-Anna Trust Fund, named after Harry and Anna  Miller who donated land and a building to establish the original Florida  Elks Hospital for Crippled Children, the trust was started in 1951. The  purpose of this charitable trust was, and  continues to be, the  collection of donations, the selling of trust fund certificates, and the  acceptance of endowed gifts. 
 

The trust fund is restricted,  which means that only the income derived from it may be used to support  our major projects: the Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services and  Florida Elks Youth Camp programs
