Since 1957, the Michigan Major Project coordinates with the 53 Elks Lodges throughout the State of Michigan to raise necessary funds.  Donations “make it happen” each year for more than 500 children!  Families in need of assistance work directly with their local Elks Lodge Major Project Chairman to submit their application! Need help finding the lodge nearest you?

Each application for assistance for a child is important to the Michigan Major Project. We work hard to find a way to make the request happen. We cannot make it possible without the generous donations from Elks as well as the communities we are located in! Please consider a donation today!
