With environmental stewardship top of mind, Aquatrols has founded a new nonprofit organization, The FairWays Foundation.

Dedicated to safeguarding the environment, the foundation will fund local and global projects that advance conservation, stewardship and education, said Matthew Foster, Aquatrols’ president and CEO.

“I believe Aquatrols can take a leadership position in making a difference in a way that goes beyond a conversation,” Foster said. “Everyone who works in this industry doesn’t just like to be outside, they love to be outside. Shouldn’t we do everything we can to preserve that? Aquatrols is.”

Still in its infancy, the organization is in the process of seeking potential board and committee members. It hosted its first soft launch at the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition in the U.K. and hosted its second at the Golf Industry Show in San Diego. The foundation has been well received so far, according to Graham O’Connor, Aquatrols’ product manager, who oversees The FairWays Foundation.

“In our industry, people appreciate the environment, and Aquatrols wants to inspire others to make a difference in a way that goes beyond just talking about it,” O’Connor said. “Sometimes finding the resources and time to do that, though, can be challenging. The FairWays Foundation wants to help change that.”

The FairWays Foundation expects to begin accepting formal applications by the end of 2019. Those interested in the foundation can visit its website for more information.
