Alchemy+ is the higher-level course for graduates of Alchemy Fundamentals. This four-day training for Executive Directors and their Board Chairs will be held February 2020 – May 2020 in Los Angeles. This training is designed to ensure nonprofit leaders are equipped with the best practices to help them thrive, deliver on their mission, and to fundraise competitively. In addition to intensive learning sessions, participants are given implementation tools and interactive activities to learn from their network of peers.

Annenberg is also proud to offer Catchafire to participating Alchemy+ participants to further their impact. Catchafire has replaced capacity building grants and offers unlimited projects at no cost to the organization. To learn more about Catchafire click here.
