Cancellation & Disruption Policy

The Foundation has implemented a cancellation and disruption policy for all groups that are confirmed to use Foundation space. Failure to utilize the space for the stated and agreed to purpose, failure to follow the intent of the Room Agreement, reservations of space that goes unused, or cancellations on short notice (see cancellation policy below) create complications for Foundation team members who are responsible for room set up and space reservations, and unnecessarily denies other groups the opportunity to utilize the space at the Foundation.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations must be made 12-24 hours prior to your meeting. Cancellation notification must be submitted in writing to Jamie Hull at jhull@rifoundation.org.

Disruption Policy

The Foundation reserves the right to deny reservations to groups who consistently failed to utilize the space for the stated and agreed to purpose, failed to follow the intent of the Room Agreement, failed to be present for their reserved time, or who consistently cancel reservations outside of the 12-24 hour cancellation window.
