Community Investment

The Goldsboro Elks believes charity begins at home.  To date, the lodge has donated both funding and volunteer time in support of local organizations doing great work in our community.  

Military and First Responder Appreciation

The Goldsboro Elks are proud supporters of our nation's military and first responders to include our neighbors and friends at Seymour Johson Air Force Base.  The lodge seeks to honor our military and first responders by participating and sponsoring various events throughout the year to include NC Freedom Fest (scroll down), the Purple Heart Banquet, and holiday celebrations with the Kinston Veteran's Home.  Ultimately, our lodge's goal is to assure the sacrifices of those who served are never forgotten.  


The Goldsboro Elks believe in investing in the education of our youth and military family members.  To date, the lodge has awarded over $100,000 in scholarship money.  

NC Freedom Fest

NC Freedom Fest is an annual, free family friendly music festival dedicated to honoring our miliary and first responders.  The Goldsboro Elks have been a proud sponsor since the festival's inception in 2021.

Elks & Speedway Give Back Campaign

Working with Speedway, this ANNUAL  in-kind donation campaign has resulted in almost 3000 hot dogs and pizzas being donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wayne County.  In celebration of this successful partnership campaign, the lodge hosts an end of summer luncheon for club members and staff. 

St. Baldricks

Working in partnership with downtown merchants, the lodge hosts an  annual St. Baldrick's campaign.  In total, the lodge has raised over $50,000 to fund finding a cure for childhood cancers.
