“Elks Helping Kids with Cancer”


Our Mission

The mission of the Kentucky Elks State Project, “Jim Bob Kevil” & “Kids with Cancer fund,” is to provide pediatric cancer patients with monetary assistance for travel, food, and medical bills to help families cope with their child’s disease and treatment.  This focus is on the values that Elks members support including citizenship, family values, teamwork and responsibility, community and giving, respect, fairness and tolerance.  It is the belief that each family will benefit from the “Elks Care, Elks Share” philosophy. In addition to our charitable fund a long-time member from Princeton lodge #1115, Mr. Jim Bob Kevil endowed funds specifically for helping these children & families battling childhood cancer. The “Kids with Cancer” Project shall also provide emergency funds to provide necessary equipment and services, in the absence of an outside funding source, that enable the independence of these patients. It is our hope of the Kentucky Elks Association to help relieve some of the burden that families are experiencing during this time.  


The Kentucky Elks Association “Kids with Cancer” Charitable Fund, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.  Your contribution is fully tax deductible to the extent that current tax law allows.
