CANTOR FITZGERALD CHARITY DAY
September 11, 2023
New York City
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 $192 million, benefiting charitable causes worldwide.
Charity Day, originally conceived as a way to raise money for The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund to assist the families of Cantor employees who lost their lives on 9/11, has expanded to embrace charitable causes around the world. On Charity Day, participating charities bring celebrity “ambassadors” who join us on our trading floor to conduct trades over the phone with clients. Many distinguished guests have lent their support by joining us on this day, including prominent actors, musicians, sports icons, models, media personalities, royalty, and politicians.
