ACI Foundation

The ACI Foundation is a not-for profit organization established by the American Concrete Institute to promote progress, innovation, and collaboration by supporting research and scholarships, while also serving as an independent resource to provide thought leadership and strategic direction for the concrete industry.

Our good works are accomplished through the initiatives of three councils and two programs.

The ACI Foundation’s proactive, forward thinking, and collaborative focus offers those who are passionate about their work and legacy an institution for contributing to the future through their expertise, experience and donations as the organization identifies trends, opportunities and needs, and takes an active role in supporting the next generation of leaders in the concrete industry.

Collaborative opportunities for funding and strategic initiatives

The ACI Foundation has formal Memoranda of Agreements with six industry partners to provide collaborative opportunities for funding and strategic initiatives. The seven partners have established the Concrete Research Network to facilitate this cooperative effort. To learn more about the CRN, the Concrete Research Council and how ACI participates in the CRN, read the Concrete International article.
