In a Hollywood Reporter story a spokesperson for LucasFilm reports that George Lucas plans to put almost the entire profit from his Disney deal into a foundation focused on educational issues.

“George Lucas has expressed his intention, in the event the deal closes, to donate the majority of the proceeds to his philanthropic endeavors.”

No word yet on which foundation will receive the funds although Lucas has already funded his own Eutopia which he’s the chairman of.

The spokesperson added that this continues the commitment Lucas made in 2010.

“I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education.  It is the key to the survival of the human race.  We have to plan for our collective future—and the first step begins with social, emotional, and intellectual tools we provide to our children.  As humans, our greatest tool for survival is our ability to think and to adapt—as educators, storytellers, and communicators our responsibility is to continue to do so.” ~ George Lucas
