CHICAGO, IL --The Elks National Foundation has awarded the Maine Elks Association a special project grant of $27,336. Through state grants, the ENF provides state associations with the resources to support national programs, expand their existing charitable projects, and explore new initiatives.

Maine has received a total of $241,200 in special project grants, since the grant was established in 1995. Each state decides how to allocate the grant to benefit their philanthropic objectives.

In August, Maine will receive a major project grant of $60,320 to help fund the state's major charitable projects-the Maine Children's Cancer Program, and the Elks Diabetes-Hypertension Van. The major project grant may also provide support for local scholarships, Hoop Shoot, and other programs. In contrast to the fixed amount awarded with the special projects grants, the major project grant amounts are based on the state giving totals to the ENF. The more gifts the Foundation receives from donors in Maine, the more funds the ENF provides to support the children, families, and veterans in the state.

Each year, the Foundation strives to give more money to each state association than the state donated to the Foundation the previous year. During the 2003-2004 year, donors in Maine contributed $132,778 to the ENF, allowing the Foundation to award $.95 back to the state for every dollar received.

Every gift from the State of Maine helps the Maine Elks Association to provide a better life for the families and children in your local communities. To see what the Elks Club has done in your state, see
