The Culver City Elks Lodge invests in the Culver City and surrounding communities through donations and community activism.
Over the years of our existence the Lodge has donated more than $1,100,000 to the community. Donations are made to organizations that help provide aid, sustenance and comfort to those who are in need. Some of these current organizations are Culver Needs, Culver Closet, Boys and Girls Club, St. Joseph Center and the Veterans Administration. There have been several others in the past, but, as needs change, so do our priorities.
We have supported the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Challengers Baseball and other groups by donating our facilities for their meetings and get-togethers.
Through our Dictionary Project, we donate over 900 dictionaries annually to Culver City’s 3rd grade students for their personal use through their schools. The Culver City Elks have, so far, donated almost 14,000 dictionaries to our community students.
Our annual Kids’ Christmas Party provides toys for disadvantaged children. We also refurbish donated bicycles and donate them to the children of our veterans and to the Boys and Girls Club for distribution.
Elks Participate in Hoop Shoot
Through the Hoop Shoot program, the Elks been developing and reinforcing grit for nearly 50 years—long before researchers and experts concluded that grit is so important for our children.
