MTGF MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Minnesota Turf
and Grounds Foundation is to promote the green industries in
Minnesota through support of research, education and outreach at the
University of Minnesota and elsewhere. The
MTGF pursues its mission in
various ways. One of these is an annual "Call For Proposals," titled
the "MTGF Research Gift Program," whereby researchers, instructors
and outreach faculty and staff involved in turf and grounds work may
submit requests for unrestricted gifts to support their activities.
As a 501(c)(3) corporation, funding approved by the MTGF will not be
subjected to overhead or other indirect charges or costs. The dates
for submission, review and approval may change on an annual basis as
well as the protocol stipulated for the submission of gift requests.
