The Toro Company Launches Land. Water. Thrive. Initiative


With a commitment to helping its customers and communities worldwide enhance the beauty, productivity, and sustainability of the land, The Toro Company has introduced its Land. Water. Thrive. initiative.

The initiative aims to help improve water use efficiency, enhance outdoor environments and greenspaces, and educate on sustainable agricultural practices. Over a two-year period, The Toro Foundation will contribute up to $1 million in grants to nonprofits in global communities with the Greenspace Enhancement Grant Program.

“Impacting lives through the sustainable use of land and water is the focus of Land. Water. Thrive.,” said Judson McNeil, president of The Toro Foundation. “The grant program is directed at conserving and restoring our outdoor environments to ensure healthier, more vibrant and sustainable communities where our employees live and work.”
