Reston, VA – For the third consecutive year, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots) will benefit from the e for Education campaign initiated and launched by Citi. This global initiative, which has raised over $16 million for education focused charities, will help Fallen Patriots send military children who’ve lost a parent in the line of duty to college. Citi FXLM will donate $1 for every $1 million of FX traded on their eCommerce venues from September 11th through November 17th.
Citi, one of the largest FX providers in the world, will donate funds to seven charities spanning a range of geographies and core focus areas that strive to facilitate equal access to education globally. The ten-week charity campaign stretches across Citi’s offices in the United States, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
“Citi has a long history of supporting educational ambitions around the globe. The Citi e for Education initiative helps connect students around the world to educational opportunities and support services that empower them to improve their lives,” explains David Kim, Co-founder and CEO of Fallen Patriots. “The significant amount of support that we are getting from Citi will help ensure that former, current and future scholarship recipients won’t have the burden of paying for higher education.”
Citi’s e for Education campaign has helped the foundation support over 900 children of the fallen in the United States, and the campaign will help the growing demands on Fallen Patriots to ensure access to education by college-bound children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
