Education & Nonprofit Development

Education

This division of the Annenberg Foundation uses media and telecommunications to advance excellent teaching in American schools. This mandate is carried out chiefly by the funding and broad distribution of educational video programs with coordinated web and print materials for the professional development of K-12 teachers. Annenberglearner.org is one of the most visited websites for free educational materials in the country.

Nonprofit Development

Annenberg Alchemy is a free capacity building and leadership development program designed to assist small to midsized Los Angeles-based nonprofit organizations and their leaders. The sole cost of admission is the attendance of the nonprofit's executive director and board chair during the sessions. Annenberg Alchemy includes two phases: Leadership Seminar, Alchemy's signature course, and Alchemy+, the higher level course for graduates of Leadership Seminar who want to take their learning further.

In partnership with other funders, the Annenberg Foundation established Project Grantmanship, offering a comprehensive, hands-on workshop that covers the complete grant development process, from designing sustainable programs and researching funding sources to writing and reviewing actual grant proposals. It is open to paid staff or board members of organizations based in Los Angeles County with IRS 501(c)(3) public charity status and annual budgets under $10 million.
