Conference Center Eligibility + How To Request Space

Please note that all conference centers and meeting spaces are closed until further notice. Tenant areas are locked to visitors and accessible to tenants for essential services only.


All Bay Area 501(c)(3) charitable organizations are eligible to use our nonprofit conference facilities at no charge, on a first-come, first-served reservation basis. All activities must be related to and support the charitable mission of their agency.

State, city and county public agencies are also considered on a case-by- case basis, pending a direct program-related alignment with the Foundation’s mission priorities.

A $1 million General Liability Certificate of Insurance naming the Sobrato Foundation, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, the Sobrato Family Foundation and The Sobrato Organization, and their related entities as additionally insured is required for every meeting use.

Commercial, religious, and partisan political activities are prohibited. The rooms are not available for use by individuals, groups without 501(c)(3) status, or those that cannot produce the required certificate of insurance.
