Futures For Kids, founded in 2008, is a fundraising charity set up by a group of individuals working in firms across the futures and options industry to raise money for charities working with children.[1]

The Futures For Kids trustees are continually working on fundraising events to gain momentum from potential supporters. Their first event was the FOA/FIA IDX Gala, on June 11, 2008, which raised more than £200,000. By its 10th year, 2018, Futures For Kids had raised nearly £3 million for charities that help kids around the world.

Further information on sponsoring events or making donations can be obtained by contacting Futures For Kids at info@futuresforkids.org.uk.
