2017 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 2016 was held on Monday, September 12th. We raised approximately $12 million, and donated 100% of our global revenue to over 100 charities worldwide.

Charity Day 2017 will take place Monday, September 11, 2017. To apply for Charity Day 2017 in NYC, download the appropriate application below:
