Capitolis is excited to announce the completion of fundraising efforts for Capitolis Connects, the firm’s new, annual philanthropic effort connecting capital markets with small, local charities doing incredible work to serve our communities.
Charitable donations are needed now more than ever – especially as this pandemic continues to affect our society from a health and economic perspective. From fundraising efforts throughout the month of June, Capitolis has donated tens of thousands of dollars to three local charities who have been doing amazing work fighting food insecurity and poverty and supporting communities who are on the front-line fighting COVID-19.
City Harvest in New York will use the donation to support their emergency response work in New York City during the pandemic. This money will help rescue and deliver more than 56,000 pounds of food to help feed food-insecure New Yorkers.
Compliments of the House in London will buy a temperature-controlled van to collect and deliver meals from local restaurants to vulnerable individuals and families in need.
Magen David Adom will purchase advanced medical kits for over two dozen of the hospital’s first responders fighting COVID-19 in Israel.
A very special thank you goes out to our clients for their ongoing commitment to our firm and for helping us reach these fundraising goals. We look forward to supporting local and impactful charities through this new program for years to come.
