 We have 2 Spaghetti dinners planned. Please support these dinners for The Elks National Foundation – Our Charity.

The Elks National Foundation (ENF) is our national charity.  It is an endowment..  This means they only use the interest of what we members give them.  My original $10.00 is still there.  The accrued money has grown so much that we get back much more than we give.  On an average, they give out $3.00 for every dollar donated.  We do better than that.  We have 4 grants going at this time totaling $9,000.00 for our work with veterans, and Youth activities.  Plus: Local kids are collecting $5,000.00 in scholarships.  Part of the money we get for our handicapped children’s program also comes from the ENF.

I, as Detroit VA hospital chairman, receive almost $2,000.00 for our Ice Cream socials and VA horse racing events from the ENF.  Please consider donating to this worthy cause.  Donate by sending me a check made out to ENF, check off donation on your next dues statement or go to and find out how to donate on line. 

Please support these charity events.  Eat for the Vets and kids. Thank you!       Stew Israel
