Welcome to the Friends of the Wildcats Foundation!

Where healthy bodies create healthy minds

Thank you for helping us have an incredibly successful “Night with the Wildcats” on March 2nd! We raised just over $21,000 net. Our speaker, Jason Romero, gripped every guest in the room with his heartbreaking journey of going blind and how running saved him from losing everything. If you’d like to learn more about Jason and his run across America, please visit his website:

Our next event is our “Golf with the Wildcats” Tournament on Saturday, October 6th. Save the date and we will post updated information soon.
The Friends of the Wildcats Foundation was able to purchase a much-needed grooming machine for the baseball and softball fields at Arvada West High School. We have big ideas in the near future to expand our athletic facilities. Please visit our site again soon to learn of our plans.

We are Arvada West High School’s newest Foundation dedicated solely to raising money for AWHS athletics.  We are a tenacious, steadfast student body and we are looking to match the condition of our athletic facilities to our strength.  We established this Foundation because we found a need for improvements to various parts of our athletic program.  Our student athletes need amenities that are updated and rejuvenated on a consistent basis to keep pace with the ever-changing sports evolution.  To benefit the maximum number of recipients, our focus will be on capital improvements which we will fund with fundraising events, private donations, sponsorships and grants.  We truly believe in our motto that “Healthy bodies create healthy minds.” Join us in our effort to make Arvada West High School the “strongest” school in the state!
