towards alleviating one of our great national tragedies - child abuse and
neglect. The alternative investment

their wallets, but also their hearts."

Hedge Funds Care
Hedge Funds Care is an international charity supported largely by
the alternative investment industry. Its sole mission is to support efforts to
prevent and treat child abuse. Hedge Funds Care raises money, primarily through
events, and awards grants in 11 major cities in the United States, Canada, the
Cayman Islands, and the United Kingdom. Approximately 30 events are held
annually. Hedge Funds Care's grantees service children of all ages and span the
entire spectrum from preventive and educational services for at-risk families
to forensic interviews and treatment of children who have already experienced
abuse. We generally fund small, community-based organizations, where small
grants can have a profound impact. In 2009, Hedge Funds Care awarded over $2.6 million to 83 organizations. Since
inception, Hedge Funds Care has awarded more than 600 grants totaling $21
million. Hedge Funds Care is largely a
volunteer-driven organization, with professionals from the hedge fund industry
serving on the Board and on local committees that plan events and evaluate
grant proposals. The organization has a small staff based in New York City.To learn more, please visit www.HedgeFundsCare.org.
