The Foundation Center's Training Annex

The Foundation Center's state-of-the-art Training Annex, conveniently located in the heart of New York City's Flatiron district, is a multi-functional facility, ideal for foundations, other nonprofit organizations, or any group looking for space in which to host meetings, conferences, seminars, and computer-based training programs.

Adjacent to the Center's headquarters library, the Training Annex includes a meeting room, computer lab, reception area, and a catering pantry. A full range of technical support services are available, and the facility is wheelchair accessible and fully compliant with all other Americans with Disabilities Act specifications.

Computer Lab

The computer lab seats up to 24 trainees and one instructor and is fully equipped to handle a wide range of technologically sophisticated presentations and training programs. Each of the high-speed Dell Pentium computers is equipped with T1 circuit Internet access and integrated sound and video cards. Each terminal is complemented by a 15-inch flat-screen monitor, providing versatility and convenience to the individual user. Like the large meeting room, the computer lab is equipped with a ceiling-mounted projector for easy display of program materials on a motorized screen and the same comprehensive package of audio/visual equipment and accessories.

Registration/Reception Area
Rental of the meeting rooms or computer lab includes access to an adjacent registration/reception area. Light and spacious, it offers a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere for receiving program participants and offering refreshment breaks. Registration and refreshment tables and cafe-style seating are available, as are coat closets and additional coat racks for larger groups.

The Training Annex pantry includes a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, sink, and generous counter space. Catering may be arranged with an outside contractor, or the Foundation Center may be retained to provide full coffee and tea service for up to 70 people.
