We are committed to making The Foundry a financially accessible community space.
Reservation and membership prices are available at a discounted rate, down to free, based on self-reported organization annual revenue or personal income brackets. The “Community Reservation” fees listed on each of the room pages are the top of the scale.
Program providers: If you are using space at a sliding scale discount, you must offer “pay what you can” pricing with a free option for your participants.
Organizations can only get four hours of free programming per week. Charges will apply for additional time booked.View Sliding Scale

How can I get The Foundry to promote my public event?
When you reserve a room, we will send you a link to a form that asks for a list of details about your event. This information will then allow us to publicize your event on our events page, social media, and weekly events e-newsletter.
Please note: If you do not submit your event by 2 pm the Friday before your event, your event will not be included in next week's e-newsletter and social post since both are publicized on Friday afternoons. It will still be included on our website.
How does the Foundry decide what programs happen in the building?
Any programs that meet our community guidelines and make positive use of the space are welcome at The Foundry! For more information about how we prioritize programming when there are several competing requests view our Program Rubric here.
