T.A.P. Logo

The Teacher Appreciation Package is an effort by Million Dollar Teacher Project to connect teachers with local businesses in their community through a week of meaningful discounts during National Education Month of November and Teacher Appreciation Week in May. The goal of the T.A.P. program is to elevate the spending power of teachers in Arizona whose compensation does not keep up with their personal and classroom needs.

By TAPPING in, local and online businesses have the opportunity to serve teachers in their community by just doing what they do best. By promoting businesses that support teachers, Million Dollar Teacher Project hopes to create a more connected community that rises together to meet and exceed the needs of local hard-working educators. When teachers benefit, we ALL benefit.

Hear What Businesses are Saying

Check out the surveys below to TAP in for our latest Teacher Appreciation Week.



Are you a certified or retired teacher working in the Phoenix area? Help us appreciate you by letting MDTP know where in your community discounts for goods and services would be meaningful and impactful. By giving us feedback, you have the opportunity to influence where discounts in the community are offered.

TAP in and let us know which businesses or services you would like to see participate in our T.A.P. Program.


Are you a local business owner/manager who would like to show gratitude toward the hard-working teachers in the Phoenix area?

By TAPPING in, you have the opportunity to impact teachers in your community by offering a meaningful discount as a part of the Teacher Appreciation Package. By participating for just one week, you contribute to a culture that celebrates teachers for their persistent contributions to our communities, and show an audience of customers, TEACHERS, how much you care about them.

If you are a teacher or represent a business and would like to know more, please email program@mdtproject.org

Without the tremendous collaboration of our partners, we would not be successful in connecting teachers to resources or businesses to their educating communities. We encourage you to investigate the wonderful resources that they offer:

Local First
Cindy Brown Family Mindset


To the businesses who have participated in the T.A.P. program in the past, Million Dollar Teacher Project and our partners, thank you. Because of you, our community has a meaningful and persistent voice in thanking and compensating teachers for their continuous hard work.
