SRP panel gives preliminary OK to $1M donation

Arizona utility weighs $1M donation for Super Bowl An Arizona utility has given preliminary approval for a $1 million donation to help produce the 2015 Super Bowl in Glendale.

But Salt River Project officials say they want more details on the financial workings of the sponsorship, including potential benefits to the nonprofit, municipal utility from the game coming to Arizona and from the utility’s support.

The Arizona Republic says the initial recommendation given Thursday still must win the full vote of the board at a meeting scheduled Monday.

Some consumer advocates are questioning the value and need to help the National Football League to produce its marquee event.

SRP’s $1 million donation will be made to the Super Bowl Host Committee. That’s a nonprofit organization set up as a liason between the NFL and the host region.
