The Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks of the United States of America was founded in the New York Area in the late 1800s. The Elks Organization was founded as social group with its primary activity to provide a positive influence to its fellow members and families. Since then it has grown to provide community activities and support with donation of funds to charitable organizations.
