We are Fortunate to be Able to Give Back
BTIG is known throughout Wall Street for our philanthropic endeavors and our standing in the communities in which we live and work. BTIG's most notable event is our International Commissions for Charity Day, where the day's global net commissions are donated to support various not-for-profit organizations that champion efforts against childhood challenges. The event is dedicated to helping better the lives of the youngest and most vulnerable members of society.
On our most recent Commissions for Charity Day in 2013, BTIG raised more than $4 million. 2013 recipients included Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, Project Sunshine, St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program and the Wounded Warrior Project, among others.
Over the past 11 years, BTIG's Commissions for Charity Days have raised more than $28 million for hundreds of children’s charitable organizations. In addition to our Commissions for Charity Days, BTIG participates in and sponsors a number of industry events throughout the year, including Capital for Kids in Dallas and regional Hedge Funds Care events in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Denver and Chicago.
