Drive, Post, Dunk, and Shoot – Buckingham Foundation and Aertson Midtown are dancing in the big game this year, but not in the tournament you’re thinking. Brackets For Good is a 501©3 organization that takes the excitement of March Madness and turns it into a philanthropic event that’s fun for the whole city. Are you ready to play forward?

For the first time ever, Brackets For Good is taking their philanthropic tournament to the Music City, and Buckingham Foundation along with Aertson Midtown are excited to be the driving forces behind the introduction as community partners for Brackets For Good in Nashville.

Brackets For Good has raised over $2.7M for 448 charities across the Midwest since 2012. Last year alone, that total was $1.5M! Better yet, on average, participating nonprofits receive 30% of donations from first time donors. This year, Brackets For Good expanded their reach from five to 11 local tournaments in Louisville, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Ann Arbor Area, Twin Cities, Hartford, Baltimore, Denver, Cincinnati, Nashville, Miami, and a National USA tournament, presented by AT&T, with participants spanning across 31 states.

Beginning February 24th, Buckingham Foundation, as the Title Partner in Nashville, will present the winner of the bracket a $10,000 donation if they win the final game (or match-up; however you look at it). This is where you come in as a power forward. Help support your favorite nonprofit so that they can take home the grand prize!

During each week-long round, beginning on Fridays throughout the month of March, donors can visit bfg.org, select a nonprofit they wish to support, and donate money to help that organization advance to the next round. Each dollar donated is a point for them! The nonprofit with the most points at the end of each round advances to the next round and the points reset.

Aertson Midtown, a Buckingham Companies' owned mixed-use development, is proud to be a Round Partner for Brackets for Good in Nashville and be a presence in the community as an economic and philanthropic force for Nashville. Aertson Midtown includes retail options, residences, and a Kimpton hotel located in the heart of Midtown. Mixing art, culture, and modern style, Aertson Midtown is a prominent addition to the Nashville skyline and lifestyle. Partnering with Brackets for Good allows Aertson to give back to the community that’s given it so much these past few years, with more to come!
