About Sun City West ALLIANCE of Business and Community

Sun City West has many thriving businesses, but without a City Hall that requires licensing, there isn’t a directory of how many businesses we actually have in our city. In addition, we really did not have an organized group that could be their voice and unite the residents, businesses, community, and other community groups.

Because of this, the Sun City West ALLIANCE of Business and Community (SCW ABCs) was formed.

SCW ABCs Purpose in the Community

  1. Promote the business and service organizations of Sun City West, AZ.
  2. Provide professional development/training opportunities for local business leaders through networking sessions and by incorporating selected classes offered by business educators or faculty from local colleges, universities, or the private sector.
  3. Sponsor community events wherein contributions received will be distributed to local charities that serve the residents of Sun City West, AZ.
  4. Hold community events as a way of thanking our residents for their support of Sun City West business and service providers.
