Missouri Mavericks – 2016

The Missouri Mavericks support the community through a number of endeavors including; in-kind donations for charitable causes, volunteerism, sponsorship of local events, hosting fundraising initiatives such as the annual Dinner on Ice, as well as facilitating the Chuck-a-Puck fundraiser at every home game in Independence.

Since the Missouri Mavericks’ inaugural season in 2009, the team has helped raise more than $1 million for charitable organizations throughout Jackson County. The Mavericks have partnered with numerous community organizations including: Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kansas City, Hope House, The Rainbow Center, Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity, and Community Services League. During the 2015-16 season, the Mavericks partnered with more than 120 local nonprofit organizations.

Prior to this recognition, the Missouri Mavericks were recognized by the City of Independence in 2014 with the Harry S. Truman Special Community Recognition Award for their outstanding philanthropic contributions to the Independence area over the last 5 years.
