Launching today as a direct result of the murder of George Floyd and the nationwide movements for change that continue to this day, Annenberg Alchemy for Black-led Organizations is an expansion of the Annenberg Alchemy Program that began in 2006. Since then, more than 3,000 nonprofit leaders have participated.
The Annenberg Foundation’s newest Alchemy capacity building and leadership development program is focused on serving Black-led nonprofit organizations and their leaders located in the five-county region of Southern California with budgets up to $1 million.
Alchemy for Black-led Organizations aims to reach Black aspiring nonprofit leaders, align Black executive directors and board chairs, and connect them to resources that will support their ability to lead organizations and produce results, which in turn will help them build healthy, resilient, and extraordinary communities. Nationally respected facilitators will instruct and guide a strategic series of interactive sessions for Black nonprofit leaders.
Annenberg Alchemy for Black-led Organizations virtual sessions will include:
- Nonprofit Management with Leslie Cooper Johnson
- Financial Management with Arna Fulcher
- Board Governance and Development with Kikanza Nuri-Robins
- Strategic Communications and Storytelling with Gwendolyn Young
- Fund Development with Janet McIntyre
