National and Provincial Programs


We have a National and Provincial Charity Fund from which assistance can be obtained to help those less fortunate in the community.


The Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children is our National Charity.  It was founded in 1956 to provide personal assistance to any child in Canada with special needs.


The Fund for Chidren's prime aim has been to emphasize the need for the early identification and rehabilitation of the hearing impaired child.  The Elks have become the leading organization in Canada promoting new programs for speech, hearing and communication disorders.


The Alberta Elks Foundation is the charity fund of the Alberta Elks Association.  It provides assistance for Alberta residents in need of any necessity of life.
