Akamai Foundation

Mathematical innovation has always been, and continues to be, at the heart of Akamai's mission. To promote mathematics education and excellence among the next generation of technology innovators, we established The Akamai Foundation.

Through the Foundation and the "Magic of Math" program, we believe we will be able to help teach kids that math can be magical and fun. We hope our efforts will inspire young people to embrace math — and prepare for success in college and in their professional lives.

The Akamai Foundation is fueled by our belief in the wonderful possibilities for the future and grounded in the knowledge that our resources will be put to careful and thoughtful use.
