Buckingham Foundation works to initiate and implement positive change in the many cities where Buckingham Companies has a presence. We strive to make a difference where our employees work, our residents live and in the communities we build.
March Madness is here, and Mt. Juliet’s Charis Health Center is “going dancing” in this year’s Brackets For Good Tournament. Charis was selected from more than 2,100 non-profit organizations across the country who registered to compete in the online fund-raising tournament.
Starting Friday, 23 nonprofits in and around Nashville will have the chance to win $10,000 through Brackets For Good Nashville, a competitive fundraising tournament that inspires the community to learn about and rally behind local charities.
“You have an opportunity when you step on the field to open somebody’s eyes, show them they can be better, how to do things the proper way. If you have an opportunity to use this game in a positive way, you should do it, and that’s something I hold dear to my heart." - Woodyard
Charis Health Center is one step closer to winning $10,000 in the Brackets For Good fundraising tournament, and it needs to score some serious donations this week to defeat Cottage Cove Urban Ministries, which has scored more than 7,000 points so far in the tournament.
Charis Health Center outscored Tennessee Kidney Foundation on March 10 to win its Round 2 bracket in Nashville’s Brackets For Good fundraising tournament.
“To have a company like Buckingham ask us, 'What can we do to help?' is music to our ears. During Buckingham’s service day they made over 200 breakfast burritos, filtered over 1000 items of clothing and organized our house top to bottom!”
