The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund works with school districts in economically disadvantaged areas that are now hard hit by the COVID-19 virus.
We provide direct financial aid to families with small children. 100% of every dollar donated is distributed in direct financial aid.
When disaster strikes, we ensure relief reaches the people who need it most. We raise direct financial assistance, we organize and distribute funds, and we provide volunteers from our colleagues at Cantor Fitzgerald and our affiliates. We work globally with charities to ensure families and individuals are given the dignity and financial support they need to repair, rebuild and thrive.
We distributed $4 million in direct financial aid to approximately 4,000 families who are still recovering after Hurricanes Maria and Irma devastated the island.

More than 200 volunteers from Cantor Fitzgerald and its affiliate companies BGC Partners and Newmark Knight Frank, along with New York community volunteers and clients from Scotiabank and Banco Santander, distributed a total of $4 million at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum.
