Sixth Annual Trading Day for Kids
October 20, 2011  |  New York

Now in its sixth year, Trading Day for Kids has engaged more than 390 institutional investors and raised nearly $6.5 million for Youth, I.N.C.’s capacity-building programs. 

Institutional investors can support Trading Day for Kids by directing all equity trading activities on October 20 to Piper Jaffray and designating “Youth, I.N.C.” as the beneficiary of trading commissions.

Piper Jaffray will donate to Youth, I.N.C.100% of designated commissions on equity trades made through its firm in a single day.  The goal is to raise at least 1.5 million dollars, which will benefit more than a dozen grassroots organizations in New York City that serve children/youth.

Youth, I.N.C. was established 15 years ago by a former Goldman Sachs investment banker – it assists youth-serving nonprofit organizations throughout the city by employing a unique model to empower, develop and educate organizations on how to manage effectively.  Youth, I.N.C. has strong connections to Wall Street, and its Board of Directors includes a number of leaders in the private equity and hedge fund community who dedicate their time to this cause.
