“Doing Good” defines Jefferies

We focus our philanthropic giving and community engagement through real-time responses to issues affecting all of us globally. And we partner with nonprofit and relief organizations that align with our commitment to sustainability, and diversity, equity and inclusion.

Making a positive difference

Matching fund programs

Jefferies has several programs designed to raise and match funds for organizations and non-profits that support our mission of “doing good.”

The Jefferies Family Scholarship has been supporting the children of our employee-partners for more than 43 years, and has awarded more than $12 million in education scholarships. Our Town Hall Awards provide us with additional opportunity to support organizations chosen by our employee-partners. And through GoodToday, a non-profit platform that makes it easy to support qualified causes and organizations across the globe, our employee-partners donated over $100,000 through direct and add-on contributions in 2023.

Over the past two years, Jefferies philanthropic efforts include over $21 million distributed to a variety of causes including DE&I efforts, COVID-19 relief, environmental sustainability and disaster relief.

Relief efforts

Our firm, our employee-partners and our clients commonly band together to address crises and disasters facing the places where we work and live. Over the years, we have led a series of global efforts to donate tens of millions of dollars to provide such relief. Most recently, these activities have included Global Trading Days, COVID Relief funds, Doing Good donations, support for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion efforts, as well as myriad contributions to employee selected charities.
