Use Our Space

We are pleased to share our space with the community.

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. In 2000, Jon Stryker's Arcus Foundation renovated the depot, which won it a State of Michigan Historic Preservation Award. It's also on the National Register of Historic Places. When Arcus Foundation gifted us the building in 2014, we did some renovations of our own, working with experts in workplace innovation to design a space that enhances our work, inspires collaboration and welcomes the community. 

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 online form below.
