Florida State Elks Association
The Florida State Elks Association, Inc. is a non-profit corporation founded in 1904. It is a voluntary
association of Elks Lodges and all Florida Lodges are eligible for membership.
The Association is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of the immediate Past State President,
five additional Past State Presidents, and the District Directors from each of the 14 districts in Florida.
Day-to-day Association business is handled by the State Secretary who is appointed by the Board and
whose office is located in the Grafton Center at the Florida Elks Youth Camp.
The Florida State Elks Association is the parent company for five corporations which it owns and
administers. They are the Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services, Inc., Florida Elks Properties, Inc.,
Florida Elks Charities, Inc., Florida Elks Youth Camp, Inc., and the Harry-Anna Investment Fund, Inc.,
which provides funding for our major projects.
Florida Elks Charitable Trust Fund
Together We Can Do Great Things
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 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.
What it means to be an Elk...
For over 140 years, the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks has been
dedicated to serving our fellow citizens.
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.
Although you may already be aware of the social benefits of our great fraternal
organization, you may not know that each Lodge has its own unique amenities.
Florida Elks enjoy indoor and outdoor sports activities, entertainment, parties,
dances, dining, and much more.
More importantly, Florida Elks take great pride in giving back to our communities.
Nationally, each year, the nearly one million Elks working together with the Elks
National Foundation provide over $80 million for charitable programs such as
the Hoop Shoot competition, scholarships, drug awareness in our schools, and
assistance for veterans of all wars.
In Florida alone, Elks provide millions of dollars in assistance to the neediest among us:
As a member of our order, you will be supporting all of these programs while enjoying all of the benefits of being an Elk.
If you are looking for something meaningful that truly makes a difference in your local community and the lives of others, and if you and your spouse want to meet new and interesting people who share your values and commitments to our country, then you’ve found it.
We hope that you’ll take that next step and make the Florida Elks part of the next chapter in your life. Together we can do great things.
