Community Partnerships

Supporting change with a servant’s heart.

At Buckingham, our definition of success hinges on the long-term, positive impact we make on the lives of our clients, associates, and communities. As a natural extension of our values, we've launched our Buckingham Community Partnerships program. Building on nearly a decade of philanthropic giving, our Community Partnerships extend our mission to the broader community, combatting both individual and systemic injustices and providing essential resources to at-risk groups.

Congrats to our Community Partners!

Our Community Partners are characterized by:

A human focused mission. We prioritize partnerships with organizations dedicated to the intrinsic value of human life and well-being, acknowledging that each individual deserves dignity and respect.

Support of equity and justice in our communities. Our partners are deeply engaged in initiatives aimed at eradicating systemic imbalances and injustices, fostering stronger, more equitable communities.

Data-driven planning. We value organizations that not only collect data but also interpret it thoughtfully to guide their actions and strategies, leading to a substantiated and meaningful impact.

Involvement in at-risk communities. Organizations that are directly engaged with vulnerable populations and are committed to long-term solutions are particularly compelling to us.
