The Ford Family Foundation does not have on-site catering. However, we have established relationships with several food-service vendors in the area who are familiar with our facilities, rules and clean-up requirements. Organizations need to contract separately with an approved food-service vendor that will deliver ready-to-eat selections. If applicable, please confirm with your caterer that they will clean up and remove all catering items at the end of your event. See the bottom of this page for a list of local caterers.
Request the Conference Room by filling out a reservation request form. The Conference Room Coordinator will respond to your request as quickly as possible. If your request is approved, the coordinator will facilitate all necessary arrangements for your meeting. Meetings may be scheduled up to 6 months in advance.
With special arrangements, the Conference Room is available for evening and weekend use. These meetings require a Foundation staff member to be present during the event, and are, therefore, subject to Foundation staff availability.
