History of the Foundation

The Educational Advancement Foundation was founded in 1969 by Harry Lucas, Jr. He was largely motivated by the desire to ensure that the teaching method of his mathematics professor, R. L. Moore, who retired in 1968, continued to benefit as many people as possible.

A Leadership Council helps in the guidance of the Foundation.

EAF, a private foundation, has been a supporter of the public foundation, The Initiative for Mathematics Learning by Inquiry (MLI), since MLI's creation in 2017.

Examples of grants awarded: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013.
