Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks

Supporting local communities since our founding in 1868.

Charity - Justice - Brotherly Love - Fidelity

This non-political, non-sectarian and strictly American Fraternal Order was founded “To promote and practice the four cardinal virtues of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its members; to quicken the spirit of American Patriotism and cultivate good fellowship.”

Patriotic and Charitable

Each year the Elks spend more than $80,000,000 for benevolent, educational and community-minded services in areas such as patriotic programs, drug awareness education, help for special needs children, scholarships, scouting, athletics, veterans’ works and physical and occupational therapy. Since its founding the BPOE has donated more than 4 billion dollars; last year alone, the national Elks organization donated approximately $675 million in cash, gifts and time to make our communities better places to live. The Elks are one of the premier patriotic and charitable organizations in the United States of America with more than 1,900 lodges across the country and approximately 800,000 members.

Exclusively American

Founded in 1903, Watchung Hills Elks Lodge 885 is a thriving community service group that each year contributes time and resources to organizations like “Food Bank Network of Somerset County,” the Lyons and Menlo Park VA Hospitals in service to our veterans, Herren Project for Drug Awareness and the Elks Camp Moore for children with special needs. Additionally, in 2018 we started chartering our local Cub Scouts, Warren’s Pack 182 and continue to support our local Boy Scouts, Warren’s Troop 228.
