Florida Elks Charitable Trust Fund

Together We Can Do Great Things

Of everything that the Florida Elks do, perhaps nothing is more important than our work with the state’s youth. Sowing the seeds of accomplishment and commitment through our Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services and Florida Elks Youth Camp programs, children are given the opportunity to grow and learn beyond their wildest imaginations.

Known to Florida Elks as the Harry-Anna Trust Fund, named after Harry and Anna Miller who donated land and a building to establish the original Florida Elks Hospital for Crippled Children, the trust was started in 1951. The purpose of this charitable trust was, and continues to be, the collection of donations and the acceptance of endowed gifts. 

The trust fund is restricted, which means that only the income derived from it may be used to support our major projects: the Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services and Florida Elks Youth Camp programs.


An online donation is the quickest and easiest way to support our trust fund efforts. DONATE here to make your secured gift. 

Federal Tax Savings

A contribution to the trust fund is a tax deductible donation to a U.S. tax code 501(c)(3) organization. Continuing changes in the federal tax code make the counsel of professional tax and legal advisors essential to a donor who may benefit financially from a well structured plan.
