PROBLEM: More classroom supply stipend applicants than ever! 

SOLUTION: We frequently represent members of the Scottsdale Unified School District community. As such, we also seek ways to donate a portion of our fees to support SUSD. 

Typically, we award cash stipends to 10 teachers (5/semester) for classroom supplies.

AN EVEN BETTER SOLUTION: SUSD employs approximately 1,500 teachers.
