2015 Charity Day

Global Charity Day 2015

This year, BGC Charity Day was held globally on Friday, September 11, 2015. With the help of our clients, employees, and celebrity guests, BGC Partners and our affiliate Cantor Fitzgerald, in conjunction with The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, raised approximately $12 million for dozens of charities worldwide with investors.



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. I would like to thank everyone who continues to join us in memorializing the people we lost
Howard W. Lutnick Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 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.
Shawn P. Matthews Chief Executive Officer, Cantor
