The Washtenaw Contractors Association Foundation is dedicated to Workforce Development efforts and received its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 2020.

The mission of the Washtenaw Contractors Association Foundation is to introduce and attract individuals to professional and skilled trades careers in the construction industry, and to encourage such individuals to pursue those careers and the education they require. 

In support of this, specific activities may include programs such as a career exposition at which students, teachers and parents are introduced to construction careers through exhibits, demonstrations and hands-on activities.
