The Toro Company Promotes Golf with Giving Program

The Toro Giving Program is committed to strengthening the integration of golf with the natural environment, supporting the education of future golf industry leaders and promoting access to the game among youth and underserved populations. Over the last three years, Toro has given more that $1.3 million to promote the golf industryís continued growth and success.

In 2005, Toro provided more than $550,000 in cash and product donations to the golf industry. On Feb. 9, at the Golf Course Industry Show in Atlanta, Toro officials presented a check for $85,000 to the Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic division of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). The Environmental Institute for Golf will use the funding to gather baseline data to help evaluate playing surfaces, natural resources, environmental stewardship efforts and maintenance practices.

In addition, Toro provided $10,000 in support of the Center for Resource Managementís Organic Golf project, and $25,000 to the American Society of Golf Course Architectís education resource, An Environmental Approach to Golf Course Development.
