Renting the SFBC
The SFBC space is available to rent for events compatible with Buddhist ethical guidelines, which are grounded in the principle of non-harm. Past uses have included meetings, weddings, performance, rehearsals, dance, memorial services, bodywork, seminars, and theater.

Note that some events offered at the SFBC are offered by groups renting the space. For a partial list of renters and their websites, check our renters page.

Availability & Rates
The SFBC space is generally available during the day during the week, and on weekends - week nights become more available during summer months - please ask as far in advance as possible. If you have any questions or would like to inquire about a date, please email info [at] sfbuddhistcenter.org.
The ground floor space is available weekdays no earlier than 8:30am and usually no later than 5:00pm (including time to setup and break down.) The rate for weekday daytime rental is $200 which includes a $25 cleanup fee. Small groups may apply for a lower rate or rent the annex. The annex is a smaller space (two ajoining rooms) on the 2nd floor suitable for 10-12 people, which can be rented in conjunction with the ground floor as break out rooms, or rented separately.
Please email us for complete rental rates - by local standards they are very reasonable. Rental fees go toward the cost of operating this nonprofit public center.
