not-for-profit speaker event series

I am planning a not-for-profit community event series, focused on spreading positivity and empowering people to meet their potential. The first event will be a ~2 hour talk with multiple speakers. I'd like to book 5 hours just to provide ample time for setup, cleanup, lingering, etc. I estimate there will be no more than 40 attendees. For the event I will need a projector (is that an additional cost?) and screen or blank wall, as well as some type of sound system, which I can rent unless you have that available. There will be light breakfast served (bagels, fruit, coffee), but no alcohol.
