Last modified: January 8, 2014, 7:39 PM

Description

Hedge Funds Care, also known as Help For Children (HFC), is an international charity, supported largely by the hedge fund industry, whose sole mission is preventing and treating child abuse.

This mission is accomplished by raising money and granting it to child welfare organizations throughout the United States, Canada, the Cayman Islands, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. HFC is the only grant making public charity that focuses exclusively on funding this cause. Since its inception in 1998, HFC has awarded over 1,000 grants totaling more than $37 million.

Fundraising events are currently held in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, and San Francisco, as well as Grand Cayman, London, Toronto, and Dublin. Money raised is distributed locally to community-based nonprofit organizations that address child abuse in the following ways: • EDUCATION to enhance awareness and understanding of abuse and neglect for children, parents, and professionals in the community • PREVENTION services to at-risk children and families • INTERVENTIONS for children who have been physically or sexually abused and support services to non-offending family members • RESEARCH on best practices in child welfare • ADVOCACY to improve child welfare • TRAINING to equip paraprofessionals and professionals to provide child abuse prevention and treatment services
