Northern Trust Charity Trading Day 2023
Each year Northern Trust holds its global volunteer initiative in October called Achieving Greater Together. While we volunteer all year long, it’s an opportunity for all our employees to come together and support the communities where we live and work. As part of that, Northern Trust is holding its second Charity Trading Day on October 12 to benefit four global non-profit organizations aligned with our philanthropic strategy.
Last year’s inaugural Charity Trading Day raised over US$800,000 for global housing non-profit Habitat for Humanity International, with our donation based upon the day’s trading revenues in our Capital Markets business. And this year, we hope to make an even more significant contribution to four very worthy causes. But our commitment goes well beyond making a financial contribution. Employees and our clients will also have the opportunity to come together and volunteer with us through the month of Achieving Greater Together and into 2024 in further support of the charities.
