Each year, BTIG pools our global resources to host the annual BTIG Commissions for Charity Day (BTIG Charity Day), where the day’s net commissions are donated to nonprofit organizations, many of which support children in need worldwide. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than US$50 million in commission profits have been donated to hundreds of charitable organizations.
Celebrity partners join BTIG for the event to help generate interest and excitement, build momentum, and to act as ambassadors for their respective charities of choice. Throughout the trading day, all-star athletes, top-recording artists, celebrities from film and television, business leaders and cultural icons join BTIG’s institutional traders to help increase donations and raise awareness for a variety of charities.
With the support of our clients, celebrity partners and employees, we are increasingly making an impact year after year to charitable organizations around the world. We are very proud of what we have accomplished together so far and look forward to what lies ahead.
