Educators Could Win Big with ‘Touchdowns for Teachers’ This Football Season

For the fifth season, SRP is teaming up with Cardinals Charities for its Touchdowns for Teachers program, which awards grants to two deserving teachers every time the Cardinals score a touchdown during the regular season. With the new football season, teachers whose school are in SRP’s service area, can apply for this opportunity to bring dollars into their classrooms.

“During these difficult times when inflation is at an all-time high, our educators are extremely grateful. Since we started this fun way to help our teachers in 2019, we’ve put $176,000 into the hands of dozens of educators,” said SRP Senior Education Representative Kevin Rolfe.

Touchdowns for Teachers Stats:  Amount Awarded:  Number of winning teachers: 
2022 season $37,000 74
2021 season $52,000 104
2020 season $49,000 98
2019 season $38,000 76
Totals: $176,000 352

SRP proudly supports educators by providing grants that foster growth for our future workforce.

I am very fortunate to have won in the 2021 season; I was able to buy a large space air purifier and a 65 lbs. salt lamp for my yoga classes. This space serves 200 students every school day as well as multiple sports teams I work with after school. Both items make a big difference in purifying and deodorizing the space in healthy ways and promote students’ relaxation and overall breathing. We are beyond grateful,” said Desert Vista High School teacher Amanda Goe.
