Elks Grand Lodge


Founded in 1898 as the world's first organization, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive organization welcoming of any man or woman who understands and appreciates our Mission. With more than 130,000 initiated members across the world we can be found in all aspects of life: business, entertainment, media, politics, and much more. In 1989, we became the first organization to abolish pledging from its organization and, in its place, created a brotherhood program that focuses on equal rights, privileges and responsibilities for all brothers. Welcome to our Journey. We invite you to explore everything that makes us a Brotherhood for a Lifetime
