CIHT Foundation

The Foundation has been created by CIHT to receive charitable donations from collections and other appeals to distribute to activities and projects that we can support as part of our charitable aims. The focus is on educational or innovative proposals that advance the art and science of highways and transportation. The funds raised go into a restricted CIHT account so that they can only be used strictly for this purpose.


Applications for funds are considered on their merits by the Chief Executive and the Senior Vice President.
