PHILANTHROPY

Burch & Cracchiolo for Teachers

The law firm of Burch & Cracchiolo, P.A. kicked off of its “B&C Star Teachers Award” program this summer. A Valley teacher will be chosen each month to receive $500 through a public nominating process on the firm’s website. Many teachers spend their own money to augment the costs of classroom supplies, field trips and other non-covered costs that arise throughout the school year. B&C hopes to alleviate that burden for one deserving teacher each month.

Washington Federal Foundation’s Local Grants

The Washington Federal Foundation, the community grant program for Scottsdale-based Washington Federal Bank, has donated $41,000 in recent local grants to nonprofits throughout the state, including $25,000 to Care Fund, a nonprofit that provides mortgage and rent assistance to Arizona families who are experiencing financial hardship due to their child’s unforeseen medical illness or injury. The Foundation’s purpose is to facilitate direct giving to community-based nonprofits serving low- and moderate-income individuals’ needs.
