Who We Are ?
We are the Montana State Elks Association. Our role is to provide charity and volunteerism that benefits Montanans and the 25 Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodges within our state. We are proud of our state major project which provides Rural Volunteer Firefighters grant money to fund necessary equipment and training that will improve their safety and efficiency.
Our organization is guided by our founding principles, charity, justice, brotherly love, fidelity, and belief in God. We love our communities and desire to preserve their cherished institutions, traditions, and values. We love and enjoy life and believe this enjoyment is increased by sharing it with family, friends and all with whom we connect. For over 150 years, the Elks has been dedicated to serving our fellow citizens through:

We Volunteer to Make an Impact
Elks make an impact where we live, work, and play. Our Lodges work as a team to sponsor programs to build stronger communities by assisting those in need through scholarships, medical research, recreational opportunities, and lots more.
Youth represent the future of our great Nation. They are our nation’s most valuable asset. We are committed to supporting Montana youth.
So long as there are veterans, we will never forget them. Our programs focus on service to veterans in need. Our veterans and active military members deserve our enduring gratitude for their service.
The Community Investment Program in Montana provides grants to local lodges to make much needed improvements to each Montana community we serve.
The many activities supported by our local lodges require the tireless dedication of countless volunteers. We also work together as a State to meet many of our charitable goals.
Our fundraisers put the “FUN” in fundraisers. We work tirelessly to increase funds so we may continue providing for our communities.
Donations are integral to supporting our mission. We rely on the generousity of the Montana communities we serve. Many of our programs benefit from in-kind donations.
