Elks Children's Eye Clinic - Over 60 Years of Making a Difference

The Elks Children's Eye Clinic is the major charitable project of the Oregon State Elks Association. The clinic would not be possible without the Oregon State Elks Association commitment to providing eye care for babies and children. The Elks became involved with the University of Oregon Medical School (now Oregon Health & Science University) in 1949. That year, Dr. Kenneth Swan needed a piece of equipment called an oximeter for a baby whose father was an Oregon Elk. The Oregon Elks promptly raised $2000 for the oximeter. Soon after, the Elks' continued generosity established the Elks Children's Eye Clinic. Donate here to continue Elks support.

Funds raised are invested in the Betty Hise for Cancer Research Inc. with distributions made each year to OHSU Knight Institute for Cancer Research and Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI).

Betty Hise (1916 – 1987) was the wife of Past Grand Exalted Ruler Frank Hise. Due to her diagnosis of breast cancer she endured five major surgeries during the last 15 years of her life, but sadly lost her fight in 1987. Because cancer affects so many women of all ages Pat Bybee, her friend from Idaho, wanted to establish a fund for cancer research in Betty’s honor. Pat passed away before the fund could be established and others continued the cause and the Betty Hise for Cancer Research Inc. was established. Funds raised are invested in The Betty Hise for Cancer Research Inc. with distributions made each year to OHSU Knight Institute for Cancer Research and Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) for cancer research.
