Share

Jefferies announced today a total donation to over 85 different charities of $9.25 million as a result of a firmwide global effort to raise money to honor the memory of their late CFO Peg Broadbent, who was a victim of this terrible disease.

Through the firm’s Global Coronavirus Relief Charity Day held May 27th, Jefferies’ clients helped to generate $7.65 million in donated net trading commissions. In addition, Jefferies as a firm will donate $1 million directly, and voluntary donations from Jefferies’ 3,822 employees totaled $600,000.

“We could not be prouder of our entire Jefferies family for raising $9.25 million and are greatly appreciative of the incredible partnership our clients have shown us in supporting our fight against Covid-19. The full $9.25 million will be wired today and go to direct relief efforts at over 85 worthy global charities who are each in the front lines helping those most impacted by the Coronavirus global pandemic. We went broadly to a large number of charities globally as this is truly a tragedy that affects all of us and, in particular, those who are most disadvantaged and in the greatest need.

The charities selected are both big and small and represent everything from food banks, child care services, assistance with PPE and other medical supplies, support for front line medical workers, assistance for afflicted military personnel, local teen centers, support for police and fire, workforce training and re-training and many other worthy areas that are most in need. We thank our employees and clients for aiding in the selection of many of these remarkable charities.

Finally, all of us at Jefferies would like to thank all the dedicated professionals working tirelessly on the front line to help those in need. They are the true heroes whom we are honored to help in Peg’s name.”
