ACI established the ACI Foundation in 1989 as part of its commitment to support students’ education, research, and innovation throughout the concrete industry. ACI Foundation is a not-for‐profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Foundation supports a wide range of research and educational initiatives that contribute to keeping the concrete industry at the forefront of technological advances in material composition, design, and construction.
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, while actively supporting the next generation of leaders in the concrete industry.
To support these initiatives, ACI Foundation oversees three councils: the Concrete Research Council (CRC), the Scholarship Council (SC), and the Concrete Innovation Council (CIC). Council members are instrumental to guiding the educational, research, scientific, and charitable goals of the Foundation.
