$95K raised to fight child abuse in partnership with Help For Children

Citco Fund Services (USA) Inc, in partnership with Help For Children organization (HFC) held its inaugural PE Cares New York Cocktail fundraiser that helped support HFC’s philanthropic initiatives.  We at Citco would like to thank everyone who attended, pledged their support, and we look forward to seeing everybody again next year. The event was a huge success with over 140 colleagues from the industry in attendance at the Citco Gateway office in New York and raised over ninety-five thousand dollars, all of which will go towards preventing and treating child abuse globally.

Jeff Rosen, Executive Vice President of Fund Administration Business Development for Citco Fund Services (USA) Inc. helped organize the event, which saw many gracious sponsors including: First Republic Bank, RFA, Mainstream Fund Services, CohnReznick, Burgiss, BRG Corporate Finance, ACA, Socium, Valuation Research Corporation, Untracht Early LLC, PEI, Maples Fund Services, Energy Capital, Citrin Cooperman, and more. Building on HFC’s 20 years of success, PE Cares New York will continue seeking out members from the broader alternative investment community who want to lead the next phase in the fight against child abuse.

Why Help For Children? – “With child abuse in the headlines on a daily basis, working together in support of Help For Children’s mission to make the world a safer place for children is more important than ever” said Jeff. The financial costs of abuse for victims and society are substantial. It is estimated that the total lifetime financial cost associated with just 1 year of child maltreatment is $124 billion in medical costs, productivity losses, and child welfare and criminal justice costs. By partnering with HFC, we can help link at-risk families to community support services, educate children on abuse awareness, provide much-needed counseling to victims, and support youth in building resilience and coping skills to prepare them for a successful and stable adulthood.

Help For Children, is a global non-profit organization that works to prevent and treat child abuse both at home and abroad. Historically supported by the alternative asset management industry, Help For Children provides grants to effective child abuse prevention and treatment interventions across three continents, in seven countries and 13 cities, making the world a safer place for children.

Citco will continue its partnership with HFC and invites others to support the cause. For more information, visit the Help for Children website at www.hfc.org or by contacting Katya Lanfant at klanfant@hfc.org.
