Greed Is Good –
ARBAN INTERCAPITAL, the world’s leading money and securities brokerage firm, is challenging conventional means of corporate giving. For the eighth year, it has devoted one day in December wholly to charity. The company donates an entire day’s revenue and commissions to designated charities.
Participating in Garban’s Charity Day are, l-r, David Golush

December’s amount exceeded the previous year’s contribution of $3.4 million.
“Garban has made it a priority to include our employees in the important decisions and activities of the firm,” said managing director Lisa Nelson.
“We’ve found that out annual Charity Day has a measurable impact on employee morale. There is no doubt that employee involvement has been the key to our charitable success.”
As more than 700 Garban employees work and live in New York, the $2.5 million raised here were given to four local charities, carefully chosen with input from employees.
“Studies indicate that corporate employees are more community minded than ever,” Nelson said.
Charity Day certainly proves it.
