Created in 2016, the Fiesta Bowl Charities Wishes for Teachers, powered by DriveTime program grants classroom wishes to teachers across the state of Arizona. The Fiesta Bowl organization saw that many teachers spent their own money to enhance their classroom experience and developed a program to aid teachers in that effort. As a way to thank and honor Arizona educators, each fall teachers are invited to fill out an online application detailing their school and classroom wish. Wishes are selected by a random drawing to receive a $5,000 grant. All wish recipients are invited to walk in the Fiesta Bowl Parade and be recognized on-field at the Cheez-It® Bowl. In its first two years, Wishes for Teachers granted over $1.2 million to Arizona teachers, impacting over 60,000 kids across the state.
The 2018-19 Wishes for Teachers application has closed. All teacher wishes will be selected on October 25 from 3:30-6:30 PM.
THANK YOU COMMUNITY PARTNERS!
