BARSTOOL FUND

For contributing $1.2 million to small businesses in Southern Arizona.

The The Arizona Bowl is thrilled to announce that the Barstool Fund has awarded grants totaling over $1 million dollars to Southern Arizona businesses effected by the pandemic. The Barstool Fund exceeded the original amount by granting a total of $1.2 million to 26 Southern Arizona small businesses.

The small businesses received grants of differing amounts, but all awards were incredibly impactful in helping the business owners still navigating the hardships of the pandemic. One such example is Howard Tuller, whose family has been in business in Tucson since 1955. “Tuller Trophy has been part of the Tucson landscape for 68 years. In that time, I’ve rarely seen an example of community support the like the Arizona Bowl displayed this past year. Not only did they support many local non-profit organizations, but they also supported us small business owners. The Covid experience forced many of us to simply shut our doors. Your generous gift has helped us recoup from the significant losses of that year.” Tuller reinforced the impact by saying, “Barstool and the Arizona Bowl’s commitment to helping local businesses defines what it really means to care about your community and to support those right here in Tucson.”

Barstool Sports partnered with the Arizona Bowl in 2021, both having similar organizational missions of giving back to their communities. Barstool Sports CEO Erika Ayers said that granting these funds to businesses in Southern Arizona was an easy alignment. “We know the Arizona Bowl has a history of giving back to their community and it’s a privilege for Barstool to be a part of that. We look forward to bigger, better, and more next year!”

The Arizona Bowl Executive Director Kym Adair announced the gifts at a press conference in Tucson on Jan. 18, 2023, saying “We could not be prouder of the impact that these grants and our partnership with Barstool have brought to Southern Arizona. We have always been a Game with a Goal, and with a partner like Barstool, we are helping our community to continue to reach theirs.” The 26 grant recipients have already received their funding. To date, the Barstool Fund has raised and awarded $41,794,160 in support of small businesses across America.
