2017 Charity Day

Global Charity Day

Our Commitment

Every year, Cantor Fitzgerald and our affiliate, BGC Partners, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate our 658 friends and colleagues and 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished on September 11, 2001 by distributing 100% of our global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and dozens of charities around the world. Since its inception, Charity Day has raised approximately $137 million globally. Each anniversary is a poignant occasion for us. Charity Day is our way of turning a tragic day into one that is positive and uplifting by helping others.

Charity Day 2017 was held on Monday, September 11, 2017 and 100% of our global revenues were donated to over 100 charities worldwide.

Charity Day 2018 will take place Monday, September 11, 2018. To apply for Charity Day 2018 in NYC, please check back for the application shortly.

"Charity Day is an integral part of who we are and a day on which we commemorate and honor our friends and colleagues who were lost on 9/11. It is through the participation of our clients, employees, charities and guests that we are able to make this day into one that has a positive impact on those in need."
Howard W. Lutnick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners
"We are extremely grateful to our clients and employees who helped us raise money for such worthy causes, and for the generous participation of our celebrity guests who graciously donate their time on this day. The impact that Charity Day has globally is remarkable, and we are proud to support so many deserving causes."
