What would you do if you had an extra $1.2 billion lying around? Walter H. Annenberg, the publisher of TV Guide and Seventeen Magazine, decided to create one of the largest philanthropic organizations in the world. Now stewarded by his children and grandchildren, the Annenberg Foundation grants millions of dollars a year to educational, arts, environmental, and other initiatives. You can read about many of these inspiring works on the foundation’s visually appealing website. From the homepage, click About the Foundation and then Our Story to watch a three-minute video outlining the foundation’s history and current projects. From there have a look at Directors’ Activities where you can read up on projects like the Annenberg Challenge, a $500 million grant to improve public schools, or explore.org, a multimedia campaign that documents extraordinary causes from around the world.
