Maryland Turfgrass CouncilThe Maryland Turfgrass Fund was initiated by the Maryland Turfgrass Council in 1997 in order to promote and enhance the turfgrass research, teaching, and extension programs of the University of Maryland Institute of Applied Agriculture and the U.M. Dept. of Natural Resource Sciences & Landscape Architecture.

The MTC endowed the fund through the University of Maryland Foundation with an opening contribution of $100,000 in 1997. MTC has since provided three additional contributions of $25,000 in 1998, 2000, and 2002.

Now, through additional individual contributions and interest earned on its investments, the fund has grown to over $205,000.

The Maryland Turfgrass Council is committed to developing this fund through continued financial support, and by increasing awareness of the Fund by turfgrass professionals, associations, and businesses in Maryland who will be the ultimate recipients of the programs it supports.
