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.
