The Ethiopian American Educational Foundation (EAF) is a membership-based organization in which dues collected from members are used to make strategic investments in higher education in Ethiopia. Accumulated membership dues are used as capital investment whose earnings are applied to fund annual projects in support the objectives of EAF. Initially, EAF has devoted its financial support for faculty and graduate student research projects in Ethiopian universities. However, EAF also has plans to diversify its support of Ethiopian higher education in other areas such as undergraduate scholarships in Ethiopian colleges and universities, faculty sabbaticals and study leaves for teaching and research, targeted conferences and workshops in higher education in Ethiopia, support of library collections, computing technology, laboratory equipment, and publication projects in Ethiopia, and enable summer workshops, study abroad programs and a variety of similar undertakings inside and outside Ethiopia. EAF funds are collected from the following sources:

1. Pledges from founding members and lifetime members of EAF

2. Regular EAF membership dues

3. Gifts, memorials and endowments

4. Matching grants

5. Fund raisers (e.g. national, regional and local cultural functions)

6. In-kind (material) contributions

7. Reinvested proceeds from assets already held by EAF.

EAF is a Section 501(c) tax exempt organization. The EAF Treasurer will issue receipts annually for tax reporting purposes with the IRS.
