Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation Selected As Benefactor for Citi's "E for Education" Campaign
Reston, VA – 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 $12 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’s FX business will donate $1 for every $1 million of FX transacted electronically from September 12th through November 18th.
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 are based on a percentage of institutional client FX transaction volumes. The ten-week charity campaign stretches across Citi’s offices in the United States, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
In the past, the E for Education campaign has run on Citi’s award-winning FX channels only - Citi Velocity and CitiFX Pulse. This year Citi is extending the campaign to include multi-dealer platforms to achieve maximum participation from its globally diversified client base.
We are honored to be selected and thrilled to be part of this dynamic initiative that has helped charities throughout the world,” explains John Lindsay, Vice President of Operations for Fallen Patriots. “This campaign will help us not only meet the financial needs of our students, but also extend our reach to surviving families everywhere in order that they may learn more about how we can assist their children.”
Citi's e for Education 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.
