The Center for Healthy Communities Provides Meeting Spaces to Mobilize

We’re Re-opening!

We are excited to announce the re-opening of our conference centers in early 2022.

Space requests are not currently being accepted. Priority rescheduling will be provided to those whose events were cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. We will reach out to you in the fall/winter of 2021. All other clients will be notified in the first quarter of 2022, when requests open. Updates will also be made here. Please note that it is probable that the booking window will be a matter of months rather than the standard one year timeline.

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

  • Masks
  • Temperature screenings
  • 6’ distancing

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.
  • In the interest of serving as many organizations as possible, breakout rooms will not be accommodated in the near future.
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 and are classified as “not a private foundation” under Section 509(a)
  • Independent, sponsored projects of a nonprofit Section 501(c)(3) organization acting as a fiscal sponsor
  • Government and public agencies
