Use Our Meeting Rooms


Manatee Community Foundation’s board of directors held a special vision that is now 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 new home at 2820 Manatee Avenue West includes two community spaces for use by 501(c)(3) organizations, government groups, and others. Grants from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation provided state of the art technology — including smart televisions and multimedia projectors — and the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation furnished comfortable tables and chairs for the community event room.

The spaces are available at no cost, provided certain requirements are met, thanks to generous Manatee Community Foundation donors.
