The West Valley Mavericks are closely monitoring the guidance from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our beneficiaries, sponsors, partners, and communities is our top priority. Respecting the well-being of everyone associated with our events and operations, the 2020 Maverick Golf Tournament scheduled for April 24th, is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

The Mavericks’ charter is focused on community with a mission to assist people in need. With the closure of schools, businesses and other resources, we recognize there are many in our community suffering and facing uncertainties. During this time of need, the Mavericks will shift our efforts to provide support to the community.

In 2018, the West Valley Mavericks founded the Mavericks Community Foundation, to assist individuals in need within our community. The Mavericks Community Foundation and its beneficiary board are prepared to expedite the application/beneficiary process in response to the COVID-19 impact.  The Mavericks Community Foundation is an Arizona Qualified Charitable Organization (QCO). Charitable contributions to a QCO provided dollar-for-dollar tax benefits, allowing taxpayers to reduce their Arizona tax liabilities for each dollar donated, up to the maximum allowable limits ($800 for married joint filers or $400 for single filers).

If you would like to assist us in making an immediate impact on the community:

Make an Arizona tax credit eligible donation to the Mavericks Community Foundation ($800 joint, $400 single). AZ Tax Credit Funds will pass 100% of donations back to the Mavericks Community Foundation to support the community.

To donate, browse to www.aztaxcreditfunds.com , select “Learn More” under Qualified Charitable Organization, select “Make Your Donation”, complete the form selecting “An organization of my choosing” and type in “Mavericks Community Foundation” under the OR section. Contributions made before April 15, 2020, can be applied to 2019, an additional donation can also be made for 2020.

On behalf of the Mavericks, our thoughts and prayers go out to those directly and indirectly impacted by the Coronavirus. It is our pleasure to serve the community.
