Hedge Funds Care is an international charity that aims to prevent and treat child abuse. Supported predominantly by the hedge fund industry, Hedge Funds Care’s main goals are to raise as much money as they can to fund programs that teach about preventing and treating child abuse, and to showcase the philanthropy within financial industries (the hedge fund industry in particular).
Hedge Funds Care, also widely known as Help For Children, is the only grantmaking public charity with child abuse awareness as their primary focus when it comes to fundraising. Throughout the U.S., the Cayman Islands, the U.K., and Canada, money is granted towards various child welfare organizations through a plethora of events hosted by hedge fund companies and associations across the globe. Since 1998, HFC has totaled over $41 million in funding to raise awareness, treat, and prevent child abuse.
The money raised throughout these events is distributed to local nonprofit organizations whose missions also revolve around child abuse. For the United States in particular, fundraising events take place in Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and New York. By dispersing the money into education tools, prevention services, interventions, research, training, and advocacy, there is hope that people all over the world will be more aware and understanding of the different types of child abuse that occur each day. With education placed as the primary prevention method, enhanced awareness and knowledge of abuse and neglect for parents, children, and professionals in the community is the ultimate and most dominant goal of the charity.
In recent HFC news, the 8th Annual Denver Golf Tournament will take place this coming July at Arrowhead Golf Club in Colorado. The tournament will start promptly at 7:30 in the morning and will include multiple golf contests throughout the day along with lunch and cocktails.
