Use Our Meeting Rooms

Manatee Community Foundation’s board of directors held a special vision that is being realized: a friendly, professional headquarters for philanthropy in Manatee County also available to the community for its special gatherings, forums, and meetings that bring people together.

Our home at 2820 Manatee Avenue West includes two community spaces for use by 501(c)(3) organizations, government groups, and others. Thanks to the support of generous donors, the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the spaces are available at no cost, provided certain requirements are met.


Times available: 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (inclusive of set up)

Meeting rooms are once again available on a limited basis. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, any group using the space will be required to agree that participants will abide to safety and health related protocols. Failure to observe agreed-upon protocols will result in forfeiture of future meeting room use.

MCF reserves the right to cancel use of the meeting room based on current infectious disease transmission rates or at its discretion.
