 Annenberg Foundation

The Annenberg Foundation, a charitable family trust, was created on July 1, 1989 by media magnate and former Ambassador to the Court of St. James's Walter H. Annenberg. Initial funding of $1.2 billion came from the sale of Triangle Publications, the last media property held by Annenberg. The foundation is based in St. David's, Pennsylvania. Currently, The Foundation has a priority on granting funds for reform of elementary and secondary public school systems. The Foundation oversaw the funding of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.



Since its founding, it has awarded over 5,200 grants, which total in excess of $2.8 billion.



The Foundation is known for many cutting edge programs and especially for coining and developing the concept of Project Based Philanthropy. A recent example of this is Not A Cornfield Project in Los Angeles.



The current president, chairman and sole director of the Foundation is Leonore Annenberg, widow of Ambassador Annenberg, and a former United States Chief of Protocol. Their daughter, Wallis Annenberg is the vice president.
