It may be a little old-fashioned, but we believe that it’s a privilege to work in this growing community. We also believe that as part of that privilege we should give back. Growing up in a small town I remember that the local car dealership was a pillar in the business community. They sponsored the little league team and were involved in lots of activities. My family and my neighbors looked up to them.
I think that same kind of pride and commitment is just as important today. So, here at San Tan Ford we’re giving back to our community. In these tough economic times we’re helping raise money for sports programs at local schools. We’re thrilled to have a relationship with the Arizona Cardinals. We are active in the Gilbert, Chandler, Queen Creek and Ahwatukee Chambers of Commerce.
Yes, it makes good business sense. But it’s also personal – for me and our entire staff. It’s a point of pride. We’re proud to wear our San Tan Ford shirts into the dry cleaners or a restaurant or the bank. We’re glad when people recognize us from a golf tournament or fun run. Because it’s truly an honor for us to be involved, to be able to support kids and families right here in our own backyard.
When you have a minute, I hope you’ll stop in and say “hi.” Here’s my direct phone number 480.621.3721. If there’s anything I can do for you, just let me know.

We believe in building for the future. So, long-term relationships are very important to us. It’s the way we do business and it’s also the way we’re involved in the community.
Here in the booming East Valley we’re an active part of the Gilbert, Chandler, Queen Creek and Ahwatukee Chambers of Commerce. We like supporting the growth and well-being of our business community. It helps all of us.
It’s exciting for us to be involved with the Arizona Cardinals. The players, the coaches, Cardinals Charities. Oh yes, and did we mention the Cardinal cheerleaders? It’s a team we can all be proud of. And proud to be part of their commitment to the community.
There are people in our community who need a hand. When things get hard, it’s our privilege to step up and help. Some of the stories are heart-wrenching. Some are inspiring. Maybe it’s a little girl with a brain tumor. Or an outstanding student who needs a scholarship to attend school. Or a single mother of 4, with breast cancer.
Some of our support is for celebrations and gatherings. The Festival of Lights, a safe graduation celebration for the first graduating class of Perry High School, Ahwatukee’s Fourth of July, Queen Creek Rodeo, Boys and Girls Club Christmas celebration, and sponsoring the Reindeer entertainment stage for the “12Ks of Christmas” fun run.
Sometimes we get to join in the fun, of efforts to raise money for a worthy cause – like fun runs and golf tournaments. It’s always a great day when we can take friends, family or business associates out for a round of golf, while supporting great causes.
The list of great organizations we get to work with grows every year.
