The Toro Company Announces 2022 Scholarship Recipients Across Its Global Locations
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (November 1, 2022) – Supporting employees and their families in furthering their education is a core component of The Toro Company’s philanthropic support. As part of this effort, two annual scholarship programs are available to employees and their dependents through both The Toro Company Scholarship Program and the Mike and Tami Hoffman Scholarship Program. In 2022, $364,750 in financial grants were awarded to 139 students representing 18 TTC communities.
Since 1976, The Toro Company Scholarship Program has awarded students based on academic record, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors and work experience, along with educational and career goals. Additionally, the Mike and Tami Hoffman Scholarship Program, founded by former CEO Mike Hoffman and his wife Tami in 2017, awards scholarships to employees and their dependents based primarily on financial need, while also considering academic and personal achievement. Scholarship awards for both programs range from $1,000 to $4,000.
“The benefits of education are countless for our employees, their families, our communities and our world. We are honored and proud to recognize and support our employees and their families as they work toward their educational goals,” said Judson McNeil, president of The Toro Company Foundation. “Congratulations to all of this year’s new and renewing scholarship recipients.”
