Funds raised go in support of Hedge Funds Care Canada, which was
established in 2004 as a way for the Canadian hedge fund community to give
back to organizations that provide prevention services to children and
families who are at risk for abuse and/or neglect, and treatment to children
who have been victims of abuse.
Hedge Funds Care Canada is part of a larger alliance of hedge fund
industry professionals that comprise New York-based Hedge Funds Care, which
was established in 1998 by Rob Davis, a dedicated hedge fund professional
interested in giving back to protect children from abuse and neglect.
The group, which includes prime brokers, attorneys, accountants,
information providers, investors and managers, has raised more than
$25 million through annual benefits in Toronto, New York, San Francisco,
Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Denver, London and the Cayman Islands, which has
been distributed to local, community-based nonprofits focused on providing
treatment and support to families in crisis, children who have been abused
and/or are in foster care.
Hedge Funds Care is proud to be the only business group solely devoted to
combating child abuse, and in eight years has made a powerful contribution to
saving children. Because of the shame associated with child abuse, it remains
a dramatically under-resourced and rarely discussed problem.
