The Partners Program is an annual giving campaign to raise funds for the Iowa Turfgrass Institute and its initiatives, supporting in-state turfgrass research through financial grants and providing scholarships to students interested in turfgrass management. 

Since its inception in 1980, the Iowa Turfgrass Institute has provided over $1,000,000 in turfgrass research grants and $240,000 in student scholarships.  For almost four decades, turfgrass professionals across the state of Iowa and industry-wide have benefited from this support. 

Your contribution through the Partners Program will enable the Iowa Turfgrass Institute to continue its efforts in providing our state institutions and students with appropriate funds. The Iowa Turfgrass Institute is an IRS approved 501(c)3 public charity and therefore all gifts to the Partners Program are tax deductible to the extent the law allows. 

If you have supported the ITI in the past, we appreciate your commitment! We ask that you consider taking part in our new Partners Program and be part of the future of the turfgrass industry in Iowa.
