Sustaining Support Fuels Innovation

Our Annenberg Circle and Sustainers provide a steady pipeline of support for the research that shapes tomorrow’s future. With two levels of giving, Annenberg Circle donors first make a $25,000 five-year commitment. Once completed, Annenberg Circle Sustainers continue their investment with a $5,000 annual gift. These gifts demonstrate exceptional commitment to the long-term mission of the Foundation and fuel scientific growth across the specialty.

A Philanthropic Pioneer

Walter Annenberg

A Steady Foundation 

During Walter H. Annenberg’s long and distinguished career — businessman, investor, and diplomat — philanthropy was a fundamental value. His interests and generosity were vast, evidenced by his endowment of schools and universities, vigorous support of public television, and championing of the arts, science, and education.

 

Longstanding Commitment

Mr. Annenberg's commitment to the Dermatology Foundation was pivotal in its growth. A long-term Trusteee and benefactor, his five-year challenge grant in the late 1980’s launched a new generation of research and progress.

Sustaining the Momentum

The Annenberg Circle society honors his belief that we must sustain the momentum of research, continue to fund innovation and invest in tomorrow’s dermatology leaders.

 

I’ve been involved with the Dermatology Foundation since 2002. DF funding makes possible research that is so important to our specialty. Seeing its impact, and knowing how much more awaits to be discovered, is why I increased my giving from Leaders Society to the Annenberg Circle. That’s how much I believe the power of research can make.”
