Apply NOW—Only 135 Spots Available

The Annenberg Foundation is seeking leaders who aspire to nothing less than greatness, and want to connect those leaders with valuable resources and training so that they can lead their organization towards transformational change.

Alchemy is a free organization and leadership development program. It is focused on building the capacity of small to midsized nonprofit organizations and their leaders. Enrollment is open to qualified nonprofits with operating budgets of up to $2 million serving Los Angeles County.

-Executive Director and Board Chair must attend. The program is FREE but both must commit to two day-long training sessions, followed by a half-day 3 months later. These sessions are led by nationally respected facilitators and local practitioners.

-Include one more board member. You may bring an additional Board member, aka your “Board Champion,” so each organization is allowed to have three individuals in attendance.

-Critical topics covered. Alchemy will tackle Board effectiveness, fund development, public involvement and accountability. You will receive implementation tools, mentoring, and a connection to a network of regional peers to support you on an ongoing basis.

-Training in two phases. The first phase of Alchemy begins in January, February and March 2010. Upon completion, participants will be invited to apply to the second phase, Learning Laboratory, which is a deeper dive into issues of sustainability with a series of roundtables and ongoing services such as technical assistance and a small grants program.

Alchemy exists to reach aspiring leaders and align the Executive Director and Board Chair in common purpose. By connecting them to resources that will support their ability to produce results and readiness to lead, we will create a strong, resilient, and vibrant Los Angeles.
