Meeting Rooms

Supporting nonprofits goes beyond the dollars. We work to empower organizations with the tools and resources to enhance their impact and plan for their future.

The Leila and Michael Gompertz Center was built, in part, to serve as a community resource for groups that support the mission of the Community Foundation. We are pleased to offer the use of our building to organizations (nonprofits with updated Giving Partner profiles and governmental) in our community.

The Kathleen K. Catlin Training Center and the Bernice & Gerald Hamme Conference Center offer audio/video equipment, tables, chairs and a kitchen (no stove) which are available on a first-come, first-served basis Monday through Friday, from 8:30am - 5:00pm. Evening dates may be arranged through special approval only and may require additional fees. Applications to use our rooms are accepted up to 90 days in advance of the requested date. For available room layout options and occupancy limits, please see the Seating Setup Diagram.
