Planting the Right Seeds

Mavericks group shot

In late 2012, four community leaders noticed there was a lack of support for organizations west of Interstate 17.  So they brought in a large group of community leaders, gathered in a room and discussed what would become the concept and vision for the philanthropic group, the West Valley Mavericks Foundation.

The West Valley Mavericks Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Their mission is to assist children and families, help people in need, and improve the quality of life in the West Valley communities.

Their roster includes 51 active members, numerous life members, and honorary members who believe that the West Valley is an incredible place to live, work, and play.

As an organization, the Mavericks’ use individual contributions, fundraising events, business sponsorships, ticket sales donations, as well as hands-on community service to raise money and support West Valley charities.

The Mavericks’ charter is to advance charity, culture, community, and commerce in the West Valley of Phoenix. As a group, their core values help to support their vision, shape their culture, and reflect what they value. 

Core Values:

  • Service - We use our talents, resources, and motivation to create a meaningful impact on the community through service and philanthropy.
  • Excellence - We hold our organization and each other to a high standard and aim for excellence in everything we do.
  • Brotherhood - We are bound in fraternity by our commitment to the organization, becoming more than the sum of our parts, and building camaraderie and friendship.
  • Gentlemen - We strive to be men of good, courteous conduct, defined not by our circumstances, but by our behavior in them.
  • Leadership - We actively engage and participate in building a greater and growing West Valley.

“We believe in planting the right seeds for the best future we can provide for our neighbors. We care about the future of the West Valley and we will continue to help build a strong reputation for the surrounding communities.”
