Traditionally, the Elks have supported youth, veterans and others in a variety of capacities, including scholarships for local high school seniors.

Since its inception, nationally, the Elks National Foundation has provided more than $480 billion to local communities and will allocate $13.7 million this fiscal year alone.

In the past Lincoln City Elks have also supported school lunch programs, food baskets, youth scholarships, various veteran’s programs and other activities.
