Fiesta Bowl Teacher Wishes

Arizona's teachers can now submit their wish on how they would use $5,000 for their classrooms. Fiesta Bowl Charities Wishes for Teachers, in partnership with azcentral, will provide more than 100 grants of $5,000 each to Arizona K-12 public or charter school teachers.

  • Fiesta Bowl Charities created Wishes for Teachers in 2016 and granted $500,000 to 100 teachers statewide, with each teacher receiving $5,000 to bolster resources in schools and benefit students. The Fiesta Bowl organization saw that many teachers spent money on their own to enhance their classroom experience and developed a program to aid teachers in that effort.
  • Teachers fill out an online application form at www.WishesForTeachers.org detailing their school or classroom need and, after meeting the criteria, wishes are selected by random drawing to receive a $5,000 grant. The application period runs through Friday, November 3.
  • This year, Fiesta Bowl Charities will match up to $500,000 in contributions, with the ultimate goal to substantially increase the overall funding from 2016 and the number of teachers who will enjoy a $5,000 wish. The Arizona Republic and azcentral have joined in the efforts by spearheading a new text to donate initiative and providing promotional support for this important campaign.
  • To donate to the Wishes for Teachers program, text 'TEACHERS' to 51555 or use the online donation form. The contribution period is open through November 3.
  • All teachers who submit their wish receive a complimentary one-year digital subscription to azcentral.
