Buchanan Street Partners is dedicated to giving back and making a difference in the lives of children in our communities. In 2007, Buchanan Street Partners formed Buchanan Children’s Charities, a public non-profit organization, to measurably improve the quality of life and educational opportunities for children. The firm’s commitment extends to fostering better educational systems, teaching fiscal responsibility, funding research and treatment for autism, supporting the arts and culture, improving the environment and encouraging employee volunteerism.

As of December 31, 2017, Buchanan Children’s Charities has donated over $2 million to children’s charities and we’re proud of the thousands of lives we have enriched. Giving back is deeply embedded in the culture at Buchanan Street Partners and our employees have generously contributed both physically and financially.

The charity’s signature event is “Encore for Education”, a commercial real estate industry concert benefiting Music Matters, a program created by Buchanan Children’s Charities to restart public school’s music programs in Orange County. In April of 2017, at the fifth Encore for Education, the charity raised over $160,000 to benefit Music Matters and the event featured a live performance by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, Cheap Trick. Since inception, Encore for Education has raised $805,450 for the Music Matter initiative.
