Every year, Cantor Fitzgerald and our affiliates, BGC Partners and GFI Group, 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 $159 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 2018 was held on Monday, September 11, 2017 and 100% of our global revenues were donated to over 100 charities worldwide. This year we raised over $12 million, making this our most successful year to date.
Charity Day 2019 will take place Wednesday, September 11. To apply for Charity Day 2019 in NYC, please check back for the application shortly.
