The Loft at 600 F

"We love working with nonprofits. Depending on the specific event details and time frame we are often able to work with the client's budget needs.

We specialize in providing a creative, out-of-the-office feel, perfect for retreats and staff meetings. Here are some things people have had to say about their experience with us (view testimonials):

""The Loft at 600 F was the ideal place to host an all day staff meeting for our small non-profit organization. The design flare of a industrial style townhouse paired with the modern decor was amazingly beautiful. The staff was great to work with and was able to accommodate our groups needs. Great meeting space! Great staff! Terrific find!""

""The space at the Loft is absolutely gorgeous. Everyone had a great time and it was a beautiful event! The space is open and airy yet cozy and intimate at the same time. It was the perfect venue, and they were so helpful. I'd do another event here in a second!""

""The staff was wonderful to work with and the aesthetic of the office was beautiful. We had a wonderful training in the space and would definitely consider re-booking the next time we are in DC!""

""As a non-profit professional, I've used The Loft several times for my organization's conferences, panels, happy hours. It's one of my favorite event spaces in DC, and I highly recommend it to others for both the location and the superb quality of service from the venue's staff.""

""The Loft is a perfect venue for a variety of events: professional, casual, celebratory and more. I held a kickoff breakfast for a women's professional group at The Loft at 600 F. The staff could not have been more helpful with advice and consultation on the event details and even arriving at a ridiculously early hour for set-up. My guests all commented, ""What a great space!"" They are now planning their own events there, and I look forward to hosting another event at The Loft too."""

http://www.yelp.com/biz/spirit-fire-retreat-center-leyden

You’ll see that there is a link on that page to additional reviews that appear to be hidden from the homepage because of filters (I believe it has to do with reviewers not having their own Yelp account).

Amanda Sullivan, MNM
CFA Society of Minnesota

This is the third year we have used the University of St. Thomas Minneapolis Campus’ conference space. We have truly enjoyed this state of the art venue. Having the technology integrated into each room creates a very professional experience for our presenters, attendees and staff. Not only does UST rank high in these regards, but it is also a very affordable option for our nonprofit organization. We truly appreciate the dedication of the staff to all of the event details which ensure a successful event for everyone involved."

Conference Center at RWJ Hamilton

The Conference Center @ RWJ offer extremely low cost high value options for non profits. For example you could hold an event for 200 people and spend only $800 for our main meeting space. That rate of $800 includes the use of the 3 projectors and screens, wireless handheld and lapel microphones, podium, easels/white boards, table and chair setup/tear down, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary day passes to our first class fitness center. We can also include a short group fitness session (ex. chair yoga for 10-15 minutes) during your day to help add both a good physical and mental break for your attendees.

Additional breakout rooms are also available and include projectors in their rental rates.

We also have the ability to work with your event sponsors both in regards to having space to setup vendor tables, as well as being a conduit for your sponsors to help differ your catering expenses thru table fees or direct donations. This can allow you to focus more directly on the content of your event instead of playing middle man.

You will also find our catering packages to be very affordable. A continental breakfast goes for under $10 per person and a standard wraps lunch package is under $15 per person (both packages include beverage service for that meal).

As a non profit you are already tax exempt, but you also can take comfort in knowing that RWJ does not have any hidden fees such as a gratuity or service fees. We also don't believe in petty charges if you need an extension cord or power strip. Here at RWJ we understand that a non-profit group has a budget for their event and can't afford to get blindsided or nickle and dimmed with excess charges.

“Carter Hall is a unique venue, charming and intimate, for any meeting or conference. Participants in my events at Carter Hall never fail to praise the beauty of the house and grounds, or to rave about the incredible quality (and quantity!) of the meals and refreshments. As an event planner, however, what keeps me coming back to Carter Hall again and again is the dedication, warmth and professionalism of its staff. Even a near-blizzard in the middle of one of our weekend-long conferences didn't faze them!"
