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.
Donating to the Mu Alpha Theta Educational Foundation
The Mu Alpha Theta Educational Foundation seeks public contributions to support its mission to promote interest in and understanding of mathematics. Over the years, this 501 (c) (3) non profit organization has accepted both monetary and product donations to support our National Convention and to award prizes, scholarships, and grants to deserving mathematics students, Mu Alpha Theta sponsors, and chapters. It is hoped that Mu Alpha Theta supporters will consider a donation in support of these goals.Reasons to Donate:
Graduating students - what a wonderful way to honor your favorite sponsor, a graduating friend, or a favorite math teacher. If Mu Alpha Theta has been a special part of your life, consider making a contribution to benefit other interested members wanting to participate in Mu Alpha Theta competitions or continue their education in mathematics.
Sponsors - think about making a donation to the Educational Foundation to honor that dedicated student officer, hard working student member, or a co-worker.
Parents - make a donation to honor your Mu Alpha Theta student or contest winner. If Mu Alpha Theta has been a special part of your student's education, help others to share the same experience. You might also consider a donation to honor your student's sponsor.
Donations are tax deductible and will be accepted in any amount. The following contribution levels have been set up:
- $10 donation: For your $10 donation, we will send a card to the person you are honoring with your donation. Donations can also be made in memory of someone at this level or above.
