The Chiefs’ QB’s foundation — 15 and the Mahomies is dedicated to improving the lives of children in the Kansas City community and beyond

Let’s recap what the Chiefs’ franchise quarterback has done to benefit others over the last couple of years:

As athletically talented as Mahomes is in his own right on the football field, he is also a fan of other professional sports, such as baseball, soccer and the NBA.

Mahomes joined the Royals’ ownership group in late July of 2020.

FROM ROYALS REVIEW: The group, which purchased the Royals from the late David Glass for $1 billion last fall, is led by local businessman John Sherman and includes a group of over 20 investors with local ties, including entertainer Eric Stonestreet.

Earlier this summer, in August 2021, he joined the Sporting KC ownership group.

“It started a few years back and then building that relationship with the Illigs, the people over there at Sporting,” Mahomes said. “I just love the way they run their business and how they kind of really invested into that team.”

Mahomes’ fiancée, Brittany Matthews, is a co-owner of Kansas City NWSL of the National Women’s Soccer League.

Mahomes has been vocal in wanting to bring an NBA team to Kansas City. He joined Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas in trying to get the Toronto Raptors to Kansas City when they needed a temporary home ahead of the 2020-21 season.

“It would definitely be a goal of mine to get a team to Kansas City. It’s a long-term play that hopefully we’ll be able to do someday,” Mahomes said at the time.

Mahomes has his philanthropy and his sports ownership, yes, but sometimes jokingly referred to as a “crown jewel” of his accomplishments, the quarterback recently became an investor in a group that plans to bring 30 Whataburger restaurants to Missouri and Kansas over the next seven years.

Congratulations to Patrick Mahomes II for assisting in bringing Whataburger to Kansas City! Exciting times ahead for the Missouri and Kansas area with the addition of 30 restaurants over the next 7 years! #Whataburger #KansasCity pic.twitter.com/03QLaoTG5H

“I love Kansas City and I love Whataburger,’’ Mahomes said.

You Pod to Win the Game
