About The Foundation


The generous support of our donors along with the hard work of the individuals working with our research grants has resulted in enormous strides for turfgrass research.

  • We were the first foundation to have a Memorial Turfgrass Library in its name. The O.J. Noer Memorial Turfgrass Collection is located at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI.
  • Our foundation is the first of its kind to have established an investment fund to ensure continued financial support for turfgrass research.
  • The advanced degrees achieved through Noer grants help develop the future leaders and professionals of the turf grass industry.
