West Valley charitable group cancels golf event

Mavericks turn efforts toward helping community through COVID-19


The West Valley Mavericks on March 18 announced that the 2020 Maverick Golf Tournament, scheduled for April 24, is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

“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 organization stated in a news release. “The health and safety of our beneficiaries, sponsors, partners, and communities is our top priority.”

The Mavericks can be reached at PO Box 2216, Litchfield Park, 85340, or by visiting www.westvalleymavericksfoundation.org.

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

In 2018, the West Valley Mavericks founded the Mavericks Community Foundation to assist individuals in need within the local 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).

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

To donate, visit 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 can be applied to 2019, an additional donation can also be made for 2020.
