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. 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. 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.
