The FairWays Foundation Receives 501(c)(3) Accreditation

(Paulsboro, NJ) Aquatrols – the world leader in soil surfactant technologies – has officially received 501(c)(3) accreditation for their new non-profit organization, The FairWays Foundation. Since first announcing the beginning efforts of creating the non-profit back in February of this year, Aquatrols has made several strides forward to prepare for the official launch of the foundation.

 “This is another step in the right direction for the organization” said Aquatrols President and CEO, Matthew Foster. “We are delighted that the grant submission process is now being developed as it will allow us to begin accepting applications in the coming year.”

The organization’s board is currently being compiled and Aquatrols’ Product Manager, Graham O’Connor, stated that they hope to hold their first meeting very soon.

“We are excited to begin” said Graham O’Connor. “With this official accreditation we are now a fully functioning non-profit and we will be announcing our next steps at GIS and BTME in 2020.”

The foundation will help fund local and global endeavors, as well as educational events, that advance conservation and stewardship within the turf industry. However, applying for grants is not the only way that industry professionals can get involved.

The foundation is currently looking to interview golf course superintendents and greenkeepers who are implementing conservation-focused projects on their courses. Those interested in finding out more information can visit the foundation’s website at or contact the foundation directly at
