Cardinals Season Opener Means Teachers Will Score More Grants from SRP’s ‘Touchdowns for Teachers’ Program


The Arizona Cardinals took on the Tennessee Titans yesterday and scored five touchdowns, which means lucky teachers will benefit from each Cardinals touchdown scored.

For the third season, Salt River Project is partnering with Cardinals Charities on the Touchdowns for Teachers program, which awards grants to two deserving teachers every time the Cardinals score a touchdown for the entire season. After Sunday night’s game, 10 educators will get a $500 grant for the five touchdowns scored, for a total of $5,000 in grants.

For the 2020-2021 NFL season, SRP Touchdowns for Teachers awarded $49,000 to 98 educators. Every year we look forward to helping more teachers and students,” said Kevin Rolfe, SRP Senior Education Representative. “The SRP Touchdowns for Teachers continues to be a fun and great way to celebrate all the ways teachers guide the next generation of innovators and leaders, while rooting for our team.”

Teachers who are employed at a public, charter or non-profit private school in SRP service territory or impact areas can sign up now to win. SRP customers are encouraged to share the contest with the teachers in their lives.

SRP is a leader and supporter of education in Arizona, providing $1.3 million in teacher resources and grants in 2019. From hands-on teacher workshops to grants for educators, SRP supports teachers as they innovate for the future and create classroom environments where everyone can succeed.
