Marcum has named Help for Children – Hedge Funds Care (HFC) as the exclusive charity beneficiary of the 2017 Marcum MicroCap Conference.
A percentage of proceeds from the accounting and advisory firm’s annual investor conference will be donated to support HFC grants for the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
This is the second year Marcum selected HFC as its charity partner for the Marcum MicroCap Conference, which will be held this year June 15-16 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.
Founded in 1998, Help for Children is a global foundation supported by the alternative asset management community. HFC provides grants to the most effective and efficient child abuse prevention and treatment interventions in seven countries, making the world a safer place for children. During the past year, HFC invested over USD3.2 million in programs to prevent and treat child abuse, impacting the lives of over 87,000 children and families.
David C Bukzin, partner-in-charge of Marcum’s SEC services practice group and chair of the Marcum MicroCap Conference, says: “It is an honour to once again support the work of Help for Children as part of the annual Marcum MicroCap Conference. We are grateful to be able to use our platform not only to provide much-needed funding for combatting child abuse, but also to focus attention on this outstanding organization at one of our industry’s largest events.”
“It is a privilege to be selected, once again, as the charity beneficiary at the 2017 Marcum MicroCap Conference. This premier event is a wonderful opportunity for us to raise awareness about HFC’s mission within the alternative finance community,” says Renée Skolaski, executive director and CEO of Help for Children. “Marcum has a long history of partnering with HFC in our commitment to protect and heal children from the trauma of abuse.”
