Alchemy Tech Program

We are experiencing a new Los Angeles, one defined by extraordinary growth and a record number of start-up technology companies. Aligned with AnnenbergTech, the Annenberg Foundation is committed to bringing technology capacity-building to nonprofit organizations serving the Greater Los Angeles area through Alchemy Tech.

Since 2006, the Annenberg Foundation has provided capacity building and leadership training programs for nonprofit leaders from small to midsize nonprofit organizations through its Alchemy Suite. Over the past 10 years, Annenberg Alchemy has evolved to meet the needs of the nonprofit sector. Today, technology is transforming how we all live and work, and nonprofit leaders must understand how to effectively use technology to advance their mission. In realizing the size and scope of technology challenges facing nonprofit organizations, the Annenberg Foundation launched Alchemy Tech in partnership with the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) focused exclusively on technology capacity building for nonprofits in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Annenberg Alchemy Tech is a six-month, regionally based program for Alchemy Alumni who wish to strengthen their knowledge of technology best practices and move forward on a specific technology project that they identify through guidance and strategic feedback during the program. Alchemy Tech is divided into two terms, with a mix of structured curriculum delivered by faculty, participant-driven content and workshops led by some of L.A.’s top tech companies. Annenberg Alchemy Tech will be both online and in-person. The majority of the activity happens via regular online training sessions.
