BTIG COMMISSIONS FOR CHARITY DAY
At BTIG, giving back is an important cornerstone of our firm culture. BTIG Charity Day, our signature event, is part of a global initiative that began in 2003. Over the last 15 years, our clients, celebrity partners and employees have been increasingly generous year after year and have been committed to helping us donate funds to charities, many of them supporting children worldwide. Since inception of the event, we've donated over US$40 million to hundreds of charities.
Each year, our celebrity partners join us to help build excitement and momentum for the event, while acting as ambassadors for charities of their choice. Throughout the trading day, all-star athletes, top-recording artists, celebrities from film and television and cultural icons join our institutional traders encouraging clients to trade with us to support meaningful causes. Throughout the event, clients have an opportunity to team up with some of their favorite stars to highlight the work and raise awareness for a variety of charities important to them.
BTIG pioneered our first Commissions for Charity Day in 2003, donating funds to three charities. Today, hundreds of charitable organizations are recipients of BTIG donations, and the charities supported each year are nominated by clients and our celebrity partners.
We’re very proud of what we have accomplished together so far and look forward to what lies ahead.
