Apply for Booking Access

The lobby of the Flinn Foundation Educational Conference Center

Booking a room at the Flinn Foundation Educational Conference Center requires a one-time preliminary step: submitting a membership-application form (below) to use our booking system.

Applications for booking membership are reviewed by staff for appropriateness of the proposed use, specifically alignment with the Flinn Foundation’s philanthropic areas of interest: arts and culture, bioscience, civic leadership, and education (the Flinn Scholars).

First-time nonprofit organizations requesting booking access must supply a copy of their organization’s IRS documentation confirming its 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax status. This documentation should be uploaded with the application below.

After submitting the application form, you will receive a follow-up email confirmation when your request has been reviewed and approved.

If your application for booking access is approved, you will receive booking guidelines and instructions on how to use our online booking system, Skedda.

Supported browsers for the application form include:

  • Firefox
  • Google Chrome (preferred)
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Safari

Once booking-access membership is granted, all booking requests should be submitted through the online booking system, no less than 48 hours and no more than three months in advance of the event. All booking requests are subject to space and date availability and appropriateness of intended use.
