The American Zhu Kezhen Education Foundation, formerly known as Zhejiang University Education Foundation (USA), was registered in California as a nonprofit public benefit corporation, a 501(c)3 with tax exempt status in 1995, originally under the name of AZKEF, and is independently operated by Zhejiang University alumni in Northern America.

The Foundation was named after the late Dr. Zhu Kezhen (a.k.a. Coching Chu or K. Z. Zu; 1890-1974), who was a Harvard educated meteorologist, and an eminent researcher and educator in modern Chinese history. Professor Zhu served as the president of Zhejiang University for 13 years (1936 – 1949). Under his distinguished leadership, Zhejiang University became one of the top universities in China.
