Elks is a fraternal membership charitable organization and you must be sponsored by another Elk to join. However, the process is fairly straightforward!
To qualify as an Elk you must:
- Be over 21 years of age
- Be an American Citizen
- Believe in God
Then do any one of the following:
- Find a local lodge close to you and pay them a visit and ask about being a member
- OR Fill out the online form here https://www.elks.org/who/ (easiest!)
- OR Complete a membership form (completely!) Download it here and bring it down to the lodge along with the application fee and tell them you’re interested in becoming a member
- NOTE: You can pay your one-time $50 application fee online here for Mojave Lodge (non-refundable).
Upon acceptance for membership, you’ll participate in an Orientation and Initiation after which you will then be able to visit any lodge in America.
You’ll make new friends, genuinely help the community, and have fun with the camaraderie of fellow Elks.
