The Center for Healthy Communities Provides Meeting Spaces to Mobilize

We’re Open!

The California Endowment will continue to monitor developments around COVID-19 and to heighten or loosen our event guidelines accordingly.

What to Expect On Site

You will be advised of safety requirements and amenities by your Event Coordinator.

Planning to book an event for 2022?

Due to the rapidly changing landscape, please do not base your projections on the capacities and diagrams under Meeting Rooms. Our safety standards could exceed public guidelines. If you are planning a small meeting, or a largely virtual event with on site seating for a fraction of normal capacities, we are an appropriate venue. We will work with you on this at the time of booking.

Our conference center

Our conference center venues are located in Los Angeles, Oakland, and Sacramento.

The Center for Healthy Communities provides meeting spaces to mobilize community and civic leaders, health providers, advocates and policymakers in the search for solutions to California’s critical health and racial inequities.

Conference facilities are provided free of charge to organizations whose programs advance The California Endowment’s mission to support people power for health and racial equity, expand access to affordable, quality health care for underserved individuals and communities, and to promote fundamental improvements in the health status of all Californians.


Eligible organizations include:

  • Nonprofit organizations that are exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
  • Independent, sponsored projects of a nonprofit Section 501(c)(3) organization acting as a fiscal sponsor
  • Government and public agencies
