The Fiesta Bowl announced that DriveTime has joined as presenting partner of Fiesta Bowl Charities Wishes for Teachers, a grant program that will donate up to $1 million to 200 Arizona teachers in the form of $5,000 grants this year.


This is the first-ever sports partnership for Tempe-based DriveTime, the nation’s second largest vehicle retailer focused solely on used vehicles. The company operates 145 dealerships in 27 states.


“Joining with Fiesta Bowl Charities and Wishes for Teachers is significant for DriveTime because we, like the Fiesta Bowl, believe in supporting community service and we have a history of providing financial resources for education,” said Don Reese, DriveTime chief executive officer. “Wishes for Teachers is exceptional in how it helps schools and teachers upgrade facilities, provide needed equipment and support student learning.”


With the new partnership, DriveTime will sponsor the teachers’ section at the 30th Annual Cheez-It Bowl where teachers sit during the game as part of their game and on-field recognition. The company will also grant 10 teacher wishes during the first-ever Wishes for Teachers Draft Day on Oct. 25, when teachers are selected and informed of their grant award.
