Terracon Foundation

The Terracon Foundation strives to become a real part of the lives of Terracon employees and the communities we serve. The Terracon Foundation gives through community and university grants and a national partner grant each year. In the past, we’ve enjoyed supporting national organizations and in 2015 we are very excited to have awarded our $50,000 National Partner Grant to the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) to help fund their Summer Engineering Experience for Kids (SEEK).
