Our mission is to identify and develop catalytic projects, services and programs
that build the social infrastructure of Webster City.

Through restoration of the Elks building, it is our mission that this catalytic project will create a renewed sense of shared purpose and collective empowerment that supports diverse, homegrown economic opportunities with a social benefit.

Together we can restore the Elks Building and bring it back to a fully-functional building that connects people and builds our local economy.

This is more than just a renovation project. We aim to create a missing place of connection for our community and to bring together the relationships and resources necessary for innovation under one roof.

After completing the building rehabilitation, LIFT WC plans to retain ownership of the property and manage the top ballroom as an event space, while leasing out the rest of the building to select commercial businesses that align with our social mission. The main floor and basement of the building could easily hold three or more separate but complementary businesses. 

Join us as we present the Second Annual “A Taste of Fall” in partnership with the Briggs Woods Conference Center on September 19, 2021. The event will be held on the 700 block of Second Street with all proceeds from the event going to assist with the restoration of the historic Elks Building. Cost is $75 per person and limited to the first 124 reservations.
