Our Philanthropic Mission

Buckingham Strategic Wealth is a financial services firm focused on taking care of clients by doing the right thing. Clients’ interests come first, period. Our firm is grounded by the deep, long-term relationships we build with our clients and our tireless effort to maintain their trust. Our success is defined by the positive and meaningful impact we have on their lives.

That success is built upon two important pillars, which guide everything Buckingham does. One, the best outcomes result from engaging in thoughtful, comprehensive planning. Two, the best decisions are based on high-quality evidence that supports both our planning and our actions. These dual pillars are central to the work we do for every client.

Buckingham is also dedicated to making a positive and meaningful impact in the communities where its associates live and work. Our multi-faceted approach to philanthropic giving channels our resources to maximize that impact. We are committed to contributing to causes our associates are passionate about and significantly involved in, supporting events that recognize the hard work of our clients and sponsoring the Buckingham Pillar Grant Program to pool our resources in a meaningful way.

The Buckingham Pillar Grant Program was created as an extension of our core belief to always do the right thing. The program is intended to provide financial assistance to not-for-profits within certain pre-selected areas of interest that change annually. It is designed to benefit programs and projects that address a demonstrated need using methods supported by substantial, quality evidence and guided by a well-considered, written plan — the same two pillars on which we’ve built our firm. Buckingham Pillar Grants will be awarded to projects and programs geared toward achieving a meaningful and measurable impact on the lives of those they serve and that reflect the spirit of “doing the right thing” for stakeholders and the community.
