MJE believes there is value in being a good corporate citizen as well as working at the highest level of professionalism on behalf of our clients and candidates. Barry Emen and Frank Carr have taken lead roles in two of the leading charity organizations affiliated with the Hedge Fund Industry.
Hedge Funds Care
Hedge Funds Care is an international charity, supported largely by the hedge fund industry, whose sole mission is preventing and treating child abuse. This mission is accomplished by raising money and granting it to child welfare organizations throughout the United States, Canada, the Cayman Islands, and the United Kingdom. Hedge Funds Care is the only grant making public charity that focuses exclusively on funding this cause. Since its inception in 1998, Hedge Funds Care has awarded over 800 grants totaling more than $29 million.
MJE Advisors is proud to be a Bronze sponsor of Hedge Funds Care. Barry has been involved in Hedge Funds Care since 2005 and is a member of the Committee of Hearts.
Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest
A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) is a non-profit organization providing prosthetic limbs, corrective surgeries and rehabilitation to children with limb disabilities in the developing world. The charity’s mission is to offer children who have lost their limbs in traumatic accidents or suffer from congenital disabilities the physical capabilities to access the opportunities of self-esteem earned through education, work and mobility.
Frank serves as the Host and Master of Ceremonies for ALTSO’s major annual fund raising event, Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest. Rocktoberfest is a charity event in which musicians from hedge funds and related industries perform to support ALTSO’s work. Frank has been involved with ALTSO since 2005 and assists in fund raising efforts through his participation on the Event Committee.
