ICAP, part of TP ICAP group, a leading provider of market infrastructure, is pleased to announce that its 28th annual global Charity Day will be held on Thursday, 10 December 2020. 

ICAP Charity Day 2020 - Campaign 2020

Each year, ICAP Charity Day raises money for charities across the globe, with 100% of the revenues and commissions generated on the day donated to a variety of worthy causes. Charitable partners being supported this year can be found here

This year’s ICAP Charity Day is set to take on a new, ‘virtual’ format, given the Covid-19 pandemic. Charities, celebrity patrons and ambassadors will support the event via online channels to raise awareness of this year’s causes and support ICAP’s brokers while they close deals. 

Since it began, ICAP Charity Day has raised some £150 million, and supported around 2,500 charitable projects around the world. 

Nicolas Breteau, Group Chief Executive Officer, TP ICAP, said: “This year, more than ever, we know that the charity sector is in great financial need. The health and economic crisis presented by COVID-19 has impacted everyone across the globe, and we want to continue to support charities to help the most vulnerable in society. This year’s event may look different, but what will remain the same is the energy and commitment of our brokers and clients to make ICAP Charity Day a resounding success and raise important funds for our charitable partners across the globe.”

Background Information on Charity Day

ICAP Charity Day was founded in 1993 to grow its charitable giving programme through an innovative fundraising initiative that would make a significant difference to charities. Made possible through its unique position in the financial markets, the Company and its brokers committed to donating all revenues and commissions on one day a year, to a select group of charities around the world to guarantee that they would receive a sizeable contribution to fund much needed projects and initiatives. Now in its 28th year, ICAP, its customers and partners have collectively raised nearly £150 million to date and supported more than 2,500 projects worldwide. www.icapcharityday.com
