Idaho Elks Rehab, a project of the Idaho State Elks Association, provides funding to nonprofit rehab providers, universities, and local community groups to help improve the lives of Idaho residents and families.

The Idaho State Elks Association is a charitable organization that began working with rehab patients in 1947, when it established a convalescent home for children with polio. The effort grew into the Northwest’s premier rehab system, providing state-of-the art, personalized care at the main Elks Rehab Hospital, the Elks Hearing and Balance Center, and Elks Internal Medicine. The Elks also partnered with St. Luke’s Health System to deliver children’s rehab and specialized wound care.

In 2014, the Idaho Elks transitioned away from providing hands-on rehab services and now—through philanthropic grants—focuses on providing financial support to rehab programs and projects.

Grants may be used for equipment, staff training, research, education programs, and local projects that enhance the lives of rehab patients in Idaho.
