The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is distinctly American.
It is a national, charitable organization founded on the principals of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity.
The Brewster Lodge supports The Hudson Valley Cerebral Palsy Association of Putnam and Southern Dutchess Counties, and The Home Service Program serving adults and children with disabilities.
We also contribute to many local causes in the Brewster area.
Through the Elks National Foundation, which is the charitable arm of the Order,
we offer five national scholarship programs.
We also offer Youth programs such as the Elks Drug Awareness Program, the Elks National Hoop Shoot Free Throw Contest, the Elks Soccer Shoot and Veterans Services such as the Elks National Veterans Service Commission.
Every Elks lodge makes a positive difference in their community. Elks lodges design programs to meet
the specific needs in their community.
Each and every day, Elks actively carry out our national motto:
Elks Care. Elks Share
As a member of the Order, you are welcome in any of the over 1,900
Lodges from Alaska to Florida.
