2019 USGreentech Community Impact Fund Winners

Community Impact Fund Recipients 2019

As the new year begins, we are grateful to reflect back on 2019 and announce the recipients of USGreentech’s Community Impact Fund.

As an employee-owned company, USGreentech strives to reflect the values of its people. In addition to building better turf systems together, our team feels strongly about giving back to the communities in which we live and serve. In 2016, we created the Community Impact Fund, an entirely employee-funded grant program that supports qualifying charities and non-profit organizations. Since its inception, the Community Impact Fund has awarded grants to 25 organizations in 8 states throughout the country. 

Every January, The Motz Corporation and USGreentech employees are invited to pledge donations. Individually determined amounts are deducted from participating team members’ paychecks throughout the year and placed in the charitable fund. Then, toward the end of each year, organizations all over the country are encouraged to apply for the grants and recipients are carefully selected by the program’s contributing employees.

We’re pleased to share that 2019 was our most successful year to date; our big-hearted employees raised enough money to award TEN $1,000 Community Impact Fund grants.

Now, that the year has comes to an end, it’s our pleasure to announce the 2019 USGreentech Community Impact Fund recipients. Without further ado...
