On September 11th, 2001, Cantor Fitzgerald lost 658 employees and friends. Howard Lutnik, the CEO, lost his younger brother along with countless friends.
It was in their grief that they committed themselves to helping families that were feeling as lost as they were. Howard and his sister,Edie, created the Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day. Throughout one day, CFG donates 100% of their global revenue to various charities and philanthropic endeavors.
Last year Charity Day generated over $12 million dollars given out to over 100 charities that all give back at the community level for causes tied to areas important to current Cantor Fitzgerald employees – health, children, education, etc.
Uniquely the CFG Charity Day has a number of high profile celebrities at the event, all working to help raise money for causes that they back.
