The rebate program was designed by Profile in partnership with the GCBAA as a means to give back to the members while also enhancing the company’s long-standing support of the organization through a donation to the GCBAA Foundation, which helps to fund educational scholarships and programs such as the Sticks for Kids initiative.
For every purchase of Profile’s Hydraulic Mulch products or Futerra Blankets made by GCBAA members, Profile paid a rebate back to the builder member while also giving a portion of the proceeds to the GCBAA Foundation. Overall, Profile contributed almost $4,000 directly to builder members in the form of rebate checks, while adding a $1,400 contribution to the Foundation.
“We know that golf course builders have an extremely challenging job, so at Profile we strive to provide GCBAA members with access to the best products at the best value,” said Jeff Langner, brand manager, Profile Products. “As a GCBAA Charter Member we’ve had the opportunity to support a number of initiatives over the years, from educational events to charitable programs, and we’re particularly proud to support the GCBAA’s Sticks for Kids initiative which provides golf education and equipment for youth.”
“The GCBAA appreciates the willingness of Profile Products to help our members not only provide the best erosion control and vegetative establishment products to the golf industry, but also benefit our Sticks for Kids Program,” GCBAA executive director Justin Apel said. “These creative initiatives further our mission as an organization and support our ‘Buy from Within’ program benefiting all of our membership.”
