Help For Children / Hedge Funds Care (HFC) has selected Goldman Sachs as the 2017 Finance Industry Honoree in recognition of their long standing commitment to the mission of preventing and treating child abuse. The award will be given at the 19th Annual HFC New York Gala being held on March 2, 2017 at the American Museum of Natural History in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life.
“HFC is a finance industry charity, and for almost 20 years, Goldman Sachs has been an indispensable industry supporter of our mission. With their philanthropic investments, and through grant recommendations made by the firm’s partners through Goldman Sachs Gives, Goldman Sachs continues to inspire others to support our core work of protecting and healing children. We are thrilled to present Goldman Sachs with this award,” announced Renée Skolaski, Executive Director and CEO of HFC.
In 2016, HFC distributed over $1 million to organizations that work with children and families to prevent and treat child abuse in metropolitan New York City.
“We are pleased to support HFC’s important work and hope others will join us and other leaders in New York’s financial industry celebrate HFC’s work,” said Dean Backer, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs and Chair of the Board of Directors of HFC.
