Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Convenings
What measures has Sunnylands taken to guard against COVID transmission at retreats?
Sunnylands has adopted a Convening with Care initiative that follows guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Our health and safety measures also adhere to local, state, and federal mandates. We have been receiving regular guidance from leading public health experts to ensure our protocols meet the highest possible safety standards. See our protocols here.
Can my organization book Sunnylands for an event or conference?
Sunnylands is not a hotel, conference center, resort, or venue for hire. The estate cannot be booked for corporate or private events.
Can my organization propose a retreat?
Sunnylands convenings are by invitation only. The Annenbergs were explicit in directing the type of programs that could be held at the estate and, therefore, Sunnylands does not administer an open application process.
How can my organization apply for a grant?
The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands is not a grantmaking organization.
Are all convenings held at Sunnylands?
Convenings are held in cities around the world, usually in locations that echo the scale and privacy found at Sunnylands.
