The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands was founded in 2001 to address important issues facing the nation and the world. The Trust established The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands to serve as a sanctuary for generations of high-level national and world leaders seeking the privacy, the peace, and “the pause” needed to address the most pressing issues of the day.

Walter and Leonore Annenberg directed a portion of their philanthropy toward funding, and in some cases hosting, meetings and retreats at Sunnylands under four banners: Sunnylands Constitution Project, American Institutions of Democracy, Adolescent Mental Health Initiative, and Promoting International Understanding.
