Help Fund Our Mission

The ACI Foundation awards more than $200,000 annually to students to both further their studies, and which provides professional exposure to the concrete industry and ACI by funding their travel to attend a number of ACI Concrete Convention and Expositions.

Further, the Foundation approved over $375,000 in grant funding among eight research projects in 2018. “Your generosity will boost the impact that the ACI Foundation’s funding will have on the concrete industry,” stated Joe Bracci, past CRC Chair.
