Help Fund Research

The ACI Foundation contributed almost $750,000 to research projects over the last 3 years. “The increase in grant amount and more competitive selection process by the CRC has brought more proposals from researchers,” stated Joe Bracci, past CRC Chair. "Our efforts and your generosity will boost the impact that the ACI Foundation’s funding will have on the concrete industry.”
