Futures For Kids has been established as a Charitable Foundation to raise funds which will be used to provide better lives and futures for children.
Established by a group of individuals who work in the futures and options industry, we want to create a focal point for individuals and organisations in our industry to raise funds for charity and to give something back to the community.
The futures industry has been booming over the past few years and many of us have benefited significantly from the growth and success of the industry. For those who work hard and find time a scarce commodity, we hope that this charity will provide an opportunity to donate funds, to participate in various fund raising activities, to become more aware of some of the charitable efforts being undertaken by many people in our chosen charities and hopefully, for some, the opportunity to help those charities directly.
We estimate that there are more than 100,000 people who work in our Industry across Europe. Whether you work in an exchange or clearing house, a bank or broker, a vendor or a software company, a law firm or consultancy, we hope that you will find time to participate in growing Futures for Kids into an organisation of which we can be proud as an Industry and which will help us all, in a small way, change the world of many children for the better.
