I live in Virginia and even though the rules out here for being legal are pretty easy...I have two cats so I can't legally work from home. I wanted to write up a proposal to ask my local church to use their kitchen, for a fee of course. Has anyone done this? I need some help with the wording.

Are you upset that no one has answered you yet?

It usually takes time to get a reply, especially one so specific. Patience pays off.

If it were me, I'd just make an apt with whoever is in charge of the building and go talk to them. I think an informal meeting would be easier to handle and see what they need to have on paper.

Thanks sillyjodes, I did and they need something for their board to review.

I'm giving you a bump, I've been wondering about this a lot myself lately (like an hour ago, seriously!).

Did they not give you any guideline?

Nope the lady just said write something up and I will give it to the board to discuss at their next meeting.

Well then, I would try to keep it simple.

"As a member of our church and an aspiring entrepreneur, I would like to ask the Church Board to consider a lease agreement for the use of the church's commercial kitchen for my cake decorating business."

then, I'd add something about how it may not be considered a normal function of the church, but it feeds my financial needs and helps the church financially as well. I haven't come up with a good way to word that. . .and the kids need me.
Hope that gets you started.

Check the Business Forum here. I found a LOT of information there about kitchen rentals, fees, etc...
