Cancer Research

"Indiana Elks Charities, Inc." was formed in the mid 1940's to administer our State Major Project which is to fight the various dreaded cancer diseases that strike hundreds of Indiana Hoosiers each year. The State of Indiana is indeed fortunate to have two major cancer research facilities which are located at Purdue University and Indiana University. Both institutions have since become the recipients of Indiana Elkdom's generous fundraising efforts.

At our State Convention in June, 2015, the Indiana Elks Cancer Research Program at Purdue University was presented a check for $125,000.

At the same Convention the Indiana Elks Cancer Research Program at Indiana University was also presented a check for $125,000.

Combined contributions to both institutions now total in excess of $8.1 Million.  Although we wish it could be more, the Indiana Elks are indeed proud of this accomplishment.
