In 2023, our Scholarship Committee awarded $30,000 to 25 graduates continuing their education in college, trade school or technical school. Our Scholarships go to local seniors, and are funded through our Bingo and Show-Me-the-Money games.
Vets on the Water is a program developed with a grant from the National Elks Foundation for Veterans & Active Military personnel.
It is the mission of Vets on the Water to provide an uplifting positive experience through outdoor, environmental & healthy activities that promotes the welfare and happiness of veterans showing that Elks care and Elks share.
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 dreams.
Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services provides in-home physical and occupational therapy to Florida children in need of such services. This rehabilitation is necessary to be rendered in the home because of the absence of these services locally or because of the patient being medically infirmed at home. Priority is given to children who do not have ready access to therapy as a result of financial considerations.
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 help youth develop lifelong skills, send students to college, meet the needs of today's veterans, support the charitable work of the state Elks associations, and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities.
