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 $192 million globally.
The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund was formed in the immediate aftermath of the devastating events of 9/11. The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund is a family-led, not-for-profit fund, headed up by Edie Lutnick, President, and Allison Lutnick, Director of Disaster Relief Operations. To date, over $369 million in disaster relief has been distributed to those in need around the world.
