Grant Guidelines

The FairWays Foundation supports conservation-based projects where the belief and commitment demonstrated offer a meaningful contribution to long term change.  The very heart of the foundation lies in the green industry and we are committed to further supporting both industry partners and their local communities, we believe that the push for change must continue to come from the grass roots level, these are the voices which speak loudest to The FairWays Foundation.

We directly fund local and global projects that demonstrate an aspiration to protect our natural resources.  The cornerstone of successful applicants will highlight undertakings in the following key focus areas –

Conservation – Globally golf courses occupy over one million acres of land, encouraging conservation of our natural resources helps to ensure a positive use of that land, with benefits that extend beyond the golf course.
Stewardship – Responsible use of resources not only within our industry but also within the wider community protects the environment we live in for future generations.
Education – We have a responsibility to protect the habitats we work and live in, education regarding conversation and sound stewardship in our industry is to be encouraged.
