NCERC Foundation


The Nevada County Economic Resource Council (ERC) Foundation is a 501(c)3, non-profit corporation, whose mission is to enhance the ability of the Nevada County Economic Resource Council to provide education and training to local businesses and economic data to members of the general public.

The primary role of the Foundation Board of Directors is to maintain a close liaison with the ERC and thereby to establish direction and develop policy for the organization. Its appropriate role is to see the big picture, to develop a long-term vision and short-term strategy.

The Foundation is supported by businesses and individuals and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
