NCERC Foundation

The Nevada County Economic Resource Council (NCERC) Foundation is a 501(c)3, non-profit corporation. The Foundation Board of Directors maintain a close liaison with the ERC to help establish direction and develop policy for the organization. Its appropriate role is to see the big picture, to help 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. The main platform for this organization and its board members to provide support to the NCERC is the Annual Economic Development Summit.  The summit brings economic development news, trends, forecast and education appropriate to the community and acts as the major fund raising event of the year.

The Foundation is also responsible for maintaining the NCERC Website which serves as a source of information for use by existing businesses, local residents, and prospective employers and individuals looking to relocate to Nevada County.
