Michigan Turfgrass Foundation Opportunities For Giving

IMPACT THE LIVES OF MICHIGAN CITIZENS AND PROTECT OUR NATURAL RESOURCES BY MAKING YOUR 
TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION TO THE MICHIGAN TURFGRASS FOUNDATION

ANNUAL FUND

Annual contributions that are not designated to one of the endowments are the lifeblood of the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation. These contributions fund annual research and support grants to MSU faculty. Annual funding helps solve current research problems in turf and supports the MSU turf team in meeting the extension needs of turf managers in Michigan.


LAFONTAINE ENDOWMENT

The Gordon LaFontaine Endowment for Turfgrass Research was created to establish a solid source of funding for basic research in the field of turfgrass science. Donations to the LaFontaine Endowment create a legacy to fund research long-term, as these donations work in perpetuity to generate interest for fundamental research projects. Donations to the LaFontaine Endowment help solve tomorrow’s problems today.


RIEKE ENDOWMENT

The Paul Rieke Turfgrass Endowed Graduate Assistantship was established by the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation with generous contributions from Dr. Rieke, friends, family and colleagues at Paul’s retirement. The Rieke Endowment will help fund communication and outreach efforts within the turfgrass industry, the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation, and the MSU Turf Team.


FOUNDERS SOCIETY

The Founders Society is an endowment used to purchase specialized research and support equipment for the turf program at MSU. For example, donations to this fund will provide funding to install additional lysimeters at the Hancock Center to expand research on nutrient fate for the continuing statewide debate on water policy and nutrient management. Funding is also needed to update the Hancock Center, including new office equipment and a heating system for the Fuller Building.
