Created in 2016, the Palo Verde Fiesta Bowl Charities Wishes for Teachers 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 support, celebrate and honor Arizona educators, 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 grant.

All wish recipients become part of the Fiesta Bowl family and can participate in community events throughout the year. In its six years, Wishes for Teachers granted over $4.7 million to more than 1,200 Arizona teachers, impacting 500,000+ students across the state.

For the 2022-23 school year, Fiesta Bowl Charities will once again donate $2,500 classroom grants to 400 Arizona K-12 public and charter school teachers. Tell all your teachers to apply for financial assistance to enhance classroom resources.  For more information, click here.
