Cantor Fitzgerald and our affiliates BGC Partners and GFI Group commemorate our 658 friends and colleagues and 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished in the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks by donating 100% of our global revenues on Charity Day to The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and hundreds of charities around the world. To date, Charity Day has raised over $180 million, benefiting charitable causes worldwide.

We continue to closely monitor the evolving CDC and local guidelines and plan to finalize Charity Day 2021 format within the next few months. We plan that by September, we will be able to host a small number of guests in our New York offices. Many distinguished guests have lent their support by joining us on this day, including prominent actors, sports icons, media personalities, and politicians.

In these difficult times, we are staying true to our mission, whether it is creating community and rebuilding our lives after 9/11; or the aid we rendered after emergencies and natural disasters; or now with the COVID-19 pandemic, we rely on the strength, commitment and generosity of those around us to be able to continue our important mission.
