Welcome to the CZI Community Space

About the Space

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is proud to call San Mateo County home and supports local organizations and community members who are building a more inclusive, just, and healthy future for everyone in the community. The CZI Community Space provides free meeting and event space to these groups and organizations.

Located on the first floor of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative offices in Downtown Redwood City, our free meeting space is a place for organizations to convene, collaborate, and host events and programs that support the local community.

CZI has provided grants to three key partners to lead the development and management of event programming for the Community Space with the goals of supporting local arts and culture, building community and supporting non-profit leaders: The Redwood City Parks & Arts Foundation, Thrive Alliance and Redwood City Together. Learn more about our event programming partners here.

The Community Space resumed operations to pilot members on April 12, 2022. CZI is committed to the health and safety of its staff, guests, and the community. Visitors to the Community Space must be fully vaccinated. Learn more about our COVID-19 policies and commitment to health and safety.
