  Toro Announces Launch of Centennial Donation Programs

Business Wire

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- February 13, 2014

On the verge of celebrating its 100th anniversary, The Toro Company has long
been committed to helping customers around the world care for their outdoor
environments. At the same time, Toro has built a legacy of giving back to the
communities where employees live and work. As Toro celebrates ‘A Century of
Innovation’ and ‘A Legacy of Caring,’ the company is proud to continue its
support of communities with the launch of a Legacy Grant Program and Annual
Product Donation Program.

The centennial Legacy Grant Program supports non-profit organizations in their
efforts to beautify and preserve outdoor environments and enhance green spaces
at home, work and play. Grants will also be made to organizations whose
projects encourage and educate the public about the efficient use of water.
The objective of the Legacy Grant Program is to provide funding for projects
in these focus areas that will serve the community for years to come.

The centennial Annual Product Donation Program will continue to support
organizations with equipment and irrigation donations that assist in
maintaining their facilities and achieving impact in their communities, such
as beautification of their outdoor landscapes or providing job-skills
training.

In an effort for more effective collaboration with non-profits, Toro has
launched its first electronic application form for both grant programs. The
online application, and additional information, can be found on
www.toro.com/community. Applications for both grant programs will be accepted
through March 31, 2014, and are available to non-profit organizations located
within 30 miles of a Toro community. The qualifying list of Toro communities
includes the following:
