A convening space that strengthens community capacity and collaboration.

Overview           Image Gallery         Eligibility          Community Room FAQ

Metta Fund’s Community Room is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District, on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, who are the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula. We gratefully acknowledge the Indigenous people who have stewarded the land for generations past, present, and future.

Free of cost, the Community Room is designed to accommodate meetings by nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and other partner institutions working to advance the health and wellness of older San Franciscans.

Currently, the Metta Fund Community Room can accommodate up to 30 people in classroom-style meeting configuration. We require that room users submit a Room Use Agreement and Certificate of Insurance, valid for the current calendar year, to finalize a reservation. More details will be emailed to you after we receive your reservation request.

For questions, please email us.
