The FMC “Give Back to Local GCSAA Chapters” in-season program started 2022 in a generous way as the company donated more than $26,000 directly to 49 participating local GCSAA chapters as part of its commitment to the golf industry. Since the program’s inception, FMC has donated more than $106,000 directly back to local GCSAA chapters to invest in their chapters for use in education, programming efforts, research advancement and other ways to support the growth of each respective chapter.
This year’s rewards check recipients represent GCSAA chapters from across the nation. They were winners in FMC’s booth contest at the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show in San Diego in February, which featured a golf simulator that had a special tie-in to the launch of Serata, a new fungicide specially formulated to combat Pythium diseases.
“The interest in our Give Back program has been growing steadily as more GCSAA chapters have realized the benefits,” said Mike Sisti, North American marketing manager for FMC Professional Solutions. “Chapters have been able to repurpose Give Back rewards checks to support their own efforts in areas such as turf research and student scholarship programs.”Between now and Aug. 31, 2022, purchases of Fame SC, Rayora, Kalida and Serata fungicides will generate additional rewards before year end for GCSAA local chapters, according to Golf & Lawn market manager Evan Parenti.
