    Syngenta donates to Golf Course Superintendents Association of America’s COVID-19 relief fund

    GCSAA Disaster Relief Fund is now assisting members affected by COVID-19

    GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, May 4, 2020 – To help GCSAA members who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Syngenta is planning a donation of $15,000 to the GCSAA Disaster Relief Fund.

    “We are fortunate we can partner with the GCSAA to help superintendents who have been impacted by COVID-19 and its effects on the golf industry,” said Scott Reasons, Head of Syngenta Professional Solutions for the Americas. “Syngenta wants superintendents to know we are always there to support them, but especially during this crisis that is unlike anything we have ever seen. We hope this donation will be helpful for offsetting some of the burden superintendents and their families may be experiencing.”

    Syngenta has been a long-time supporter of superintendents as a Gold Level partner with the GCSAA since the inception of the program and recognizes the need to provide this additional support for the Disaster Relief Fund.

    “Syngenta has been a great friend to GCSAA over the years with their support of professional development for our members,” said Rhett Evans, GCSAA CEO. “Now they continue to show their generosity by helping GCSAA members who are in need during these unprecedented times. We are very thankful to have a partner like Syngenta.”

    GCSAA established the Disaster Relief Fund after Hurricane Katrina in 2006 to be able to assist members who had suffered personal loss. Since then, the fund has been a resource for members who have fallen victim to other natural disasters such as tornadoes, flooding, wildfires and now the COVID-19 pandemic.
