In 1996, Mu Alpha Theta established the Mu Alpha Theta Educational Foundation to support
the educational activities of Mu Alpha Theta. Over the years, this 501 (c) (3) nonprofit
organization has accepted both monetary and product donations to reduce the cost of the
National Convention and to award prizes, scholarships, and grants to deserving mathematics
students, Mu Alpha Theta sponsors, and chapters. The Foundation is directed by the Governing
Council of Mu Alpha Theta and its By-Laws can be viewed here.
In order to fulfill its mission, the Foundation must derive one third of its support from public donations.
