On Monday, April 19, 2004, we held our third annual “Maxcor/Euro Brokers Charity Day”. On that day, 100% of the brokerage revenues generated by our New York, London, Mexico City and Stamford offices was donated to our Maxcor Foundation and the Euro Brokers Relief Fund. We raised more than $1 million this year and, collectively, our Charity Days have raised a total of more than 3 million.

The Maxcor Foundation was established to recognize and support organizations that benefit the various communities in which the firm and its employees operate. Funds raised by the Maxcor Foundation from this year’s Charity Day went to: The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation, Inc., Columbia University Medical Center, the Fuqua/Coach K Center of Leadership & Ethics, and The Royal Marsden Hospital in London. The first two of these organizations were also recipients of grants from the Maxcor Foundation following our 2003 Charity Day. Learn more about these organizations here.

As was the case with past Charity Days, this year’s Charity Day also provided continued support to The Euro Brokers Relief Fund. The Relief Fund was established immediately after September 11th to provide financial assistance to the families and financial dependents – including 88 children – of the firm’s 61 employees who were victims of the terrorist attacks on The World Trade Center. Maxcor and Euro Brokers’ offices were formerly located on the 84th Floor of Tower Two. To date, the Relief Fund, a 501(c)(3)-qualified public charity, has distributed or committed to distribute funds in excess of $2.5 million.
