Use Our Space

When the Arcus Foundation gifted us our building, we all agreed it should be a space that inspires collaboration and welcomes the community. We offer use of our meeting spaces to groups at no cost to them.

Located on the corner of East Michigan Avenue and Pitcher Street on the edge of the Edison neighborhood in downtown Kalamazoo, our building was originally constructed in 1870 to serve as the Grand Rapids and Indiana Railroad Kalamazoo Station. It was renovated in 2000 (winning a State of Michigan Historic Preservation Award) and again when it became the Community Foundation's home in 2014. It's also on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Our meeting space is available from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday (our office hours are 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, but this gives groups time for set-up and tear-down during our regular office hours).

If you are interested in using space at the Community Foundation, please review our Space Use Policy and Room Info and Photos. Submit your request using the form below.
