Alchemy+, the higher-level course for graduates of Alchemy Leadership Seminar who want to take their learning further, will be held during 2016-2017. Among the central issues addressed are fundraising, Board governance and effectiveness, financial literacy and developing a strong case for support. In addition to intensive learning sessions, participants are given implementation tools and an ongoing opportunity to share best practices and innovative strategies.

Successful completion qualifies an organization to apply for a capacity-building grant up to $10,000. All alumni of past Alchemy Leadership Seminars and Annenberg Nonprofit Leadership Seminars (held 2006-2009) can apply for Alchemy+ at no cost to the organization, as long as they meet the following criteria for eligibility:

  • Executive Director must have attended all three Alchemy Leadership Seminar sessions with the Board Chair, in addition to submitting all assignments before the stated deadline.
  • Executive Director and Board Chair must agree to attend all three Alchemy+ sessions.

 The application period for 2016-2017 Alchemy+ trainings is now closed. The dates for the required Alchemy+ trainings can be downloaded for your information only.
