About George Lucas Educational Foundation

The George Lucas Educational Foundation is dedicated to transforming kindergarten through 12th-grade (K–12) education so all students can acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to thrive in their studies, careers, and adult lives. Founded by innovative and award-winning filmmaker George Lucas in 1991, the Foundation takes a strategic approach to improving K–12 education through two distinct areas of focus: (1) Edutopia, which uses digital media and interactive technology to increase knowledge, sharing, and adoption of what works in education, and (2) Lucas Education Research, which conducts rigorous research in collaboration with university partners, research firms, and leading educators to identify and evaluate replicable practices at the student, teacher, and school level that profoundly and positively impact the course of learning and lifelong achievement. A nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) private foundation that is operated for educational purposes, we welcome all who are devoted to improving education.
