WHAT WE HEAR BACK ABOUT THE GIVE BACK

We made a commitment to give back to the golf industry. FMC has kept that promise and we are hearing back about how FMC’s Give Back is making a positive impact. In addition to a diverse product portfolio, FMC provides this added support to the industry through the FMC Give Back to Local GCSAA Chapters program, an initiative driven by the FMC True Champions program, a source for golf course superintendents and managers to access valuable Product Rewards, Technical Resources and Solution Assurances. FMC True Champions also supports the local chapters of industry associations, including GCSAA. Annual contributions are set aside for local GCSAA chapters based on annual purchases.

"Thanks to FMC’s support, we will use this unexpected money to support scholarships to attend the Great Lakes School of Turfgrass Science online educational courses. Each year, the MGCSA sponsors up to five individuals who complete the ten-week program. It is a win-win for the industry and the student. The Give Back to Local Chapters program helps make this opportunity possible.”

- Jack MacKenzie, Minnesota GCSA
