The Minnesota GCSA has donated $5,000 to support the Environmental Institute for Golf (EIFG), the philanthropic organization of GCSAA. With the donation, the chapter becomes a new member of the EIFG’s Platinum Tee Club, which recognizes organizations that give $5,000 or more annually.

The Minnesota GCSA is also recognized at the Governor’s Club level in the EIFG’s Cumulative Giving Program, which denotes a donor that has contributed between $50,000 and $99,999 since 1987.

“The Minnesota GCSA is only one year younger than GCSAA itself, and they have a long history of support for the association,” says Rhett Evans, CEO of GCSAA and the EIFG. “We thank them for their latest donation to the EIFG, which will help fund research, education, scholarships and advocacy.”

The Minnesota GCSA was founded in 1927. It is one of 99 GCSAA-affiliated chapters in North America.

“The EIFG lives up to its mission statement, and experience has proven to the Minnesota GCSA, time after time, the EIFG’s presence and leadership in the industry is worth every penny we can spare,” says Brandon Schindele, president of the Minnesota GCSA.
