Welcome to the Kansas Elks Association website.

The Kansas Elks Association (KEA) was formed in 1906. It is one of 43 state associations under
the umbrella of authority of the Benevolent and Protective order of Elks of the United States of
America. The Order of Elks is the oldest distinctively American fraternity. There are 19 Elks
Lodges in Kansas. This 2022-23 year`s Kansas theme is “Locked in with Elks.”

In accordance with the mission of the Order of Elks, the mission of the Kansas Elks is to instill
the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity, to recognize a belief in God, to
serve the people and communities of Kansas through benevolent and charitable programs and
to provide guidance to local Kansas Elks Lodges. Kansas Elks invest in their communities and
their citizens through both national and local Lodge programs. These programs help children
grow up healthy and drug free, meet the needs of Veterans, provide scholarships, promote
patriotism and support youth sports programs like basketball penalty shot competition (Hoop
Shoot) and the soccer penalty shot competition (Soccer Shoot).

Kansas Elks and their Lodges have a strong record of support by giving to the Elks flagship charity, the Elks National Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 charity that funds many of the Elks programs. This charitable foundation was started by the Elks almost 100 years ago.

Additionally, the Kansas Elks state flagship 501 ( c) charity is the Kansas Elks Training Center for the Handicapped (KETCH) which is located in Wichita. Started in 1964, KETCH`s mission is to promote independence for persons with disabilities through innovative learning experiences that support individuals' choices for working, living and playing in their community. It currently serves hundreds of people. Over its life. KETCH has served tens of thousands of people.
