Whether it’s a corporate meeting, a company retreat or a social gathering, Goodwill of Central Iowa opens its doors to the community. As an opportunity to raise funds for our mission, we open our meeting spaces for business, board and community meetings or events.
Rentals are available from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. After hours rates apply for events held from 5 – 10 p.m. Breakfast meetings prior to 8 a.m. are scheduled according to staff availability. Please reach out to confirm.
The Board and Community rooms feature in-wall touch panel controls running projection systems with audio connections, two lapel microphones and two hand-held wireless microphones that can be used simultaneously. Goodwill staff will work with you to customize your technology needs.
From an afternoon snack to a four-course meal, our on-site catering staff from the Smilin’ G Cafe will work with you to plan your event menu. Catering orders through our help provide real-world training opportunities for individuals with barriers seeking future employment in the food service industry. Under the direction of the culinary and catering manager, Chef Joe Cross, trainees learn food preparation, customer service, cash register, safety and sanitation skills.
Goodwill has first right of refusal for all catering events happening on site.
