The Internet Educational Equal Access Foundation (IEEAF) is a
non-profit corporation created by its member institutions to accept
assets donated to the global education community by a broadly defined
telecommunication industry and corporate community. Founding member
institutions include the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives
in California (CENIC), the Pacific Northwest Gigapop, the Pacific
Internet2 Coalition, the University of Maryland, and GEO.
Working with its members and Affiliates, IEEAF works to obtain donated
assets or right to use such assets, to include communications
infrastructure (fiber, conduit, rights of way), colocation facilities
or services. These donated assets are then made available to
qualified not-for-profit "Asset Stewards" to place them into useful
service for the research and education community.
