AT GFI’S OFFICES, NEW YORK CITY
GFI Group and our Cantor Fitzgerald affiliates 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.
Due to the global pandemic, we are paying attention to the evolving CDC guidelines and plan to know how Charity Day 2022 will be hosted within the next few months, whether it is in person, virtual or hybrid. We anticipate, by September, we will be able to welcome a small number of guests to 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. For additional information, please contact The Charity Day Team at CharityDay@gfigroup.com.
