Alamance County Economic Development Foundation

The Alamance County Economic Development Foundation (ACEDF) was formed in 2005 as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation to provide a vehicle for private funding support for community and economic development activities. The ACEDF contracts with the Chamber, the primary economic development agency for Alamance County, to provide economic development staffing and program implementation support complementary to that otherwise provided by public and Chamber resources. The Foundation is governed by an eight-member Board of Directors half of whom also serve, simultaneously, as members of the Chamber Executive Committee. The other four Board members are at-large elected from the pool of investors providing funding to the Foundation and not otherwise connected with Chamber management.
