The FairWays Foundation, a nonprofit that supports and promotes conservation and stewardship within the turf industry, completed its third grant cycle. The foundation says it has now funded 29 projects across the U.S., Canada and the U.K.

The 2022 grant cycle funded 12 projects, including phragmites removal at Sand Ridge Golf Club in Chardon, Ohio and Rock Hollow Golf Club in Peru, Ind., canal bank restoration in Evanston, Ill., and more. The foundation reports its 2022 funding totals $169,000, bringing its three-year funding total to $441,791.

“We understand making a difference locally takes tremendous grit from a local champion,” Matt Foster, CEO & President of Aquatrols and president of The FairWays Foundation, said. “It might be a green keeper or a program volunteer. Regardless, without their will, these projects would never move forward. Our message to those individuals out there with a wish for a healthier environment is The Fairways Foundation can help with the way to get there.”

The foundation’s 2023 funding cycle opens in February.

In July, The Fairways Foundation hosted its inaugural summit at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.
