reserve meeting space
CCF provides a neutral table where opinion leaders, decision makers and concerned individuals can come together to develop common solutions to shared challenges. Our modern and well-equipped conference facility, the Joan Palevsky Center for the Future of Los Angeles, is available at no cost to nonprofit organizations whose work aligns with our mission.
The welcoming space is intended to host convenings that foster collaboration across sectors and communities to create positive systemic change across Los Angeles County. It is not meant for individual organizational business, board meetings or fundraising.
The Palevsky Center can be reserved Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Due to popular demand, one month’s advance notice is requested.
