CME Group Community Foundation

 
 
CME Group Corporate Philanthropy

The CME Group Community Foundation provides charitable grants focused on meeting the needs of the global communities in which we live and do business.

In addition to disaster relief, the Foundation seeks to provide particular support to three areas of concern: children in need, education, and health and human services.

The CME Group Community Foundation is aided in these endeavors by members of our exchange community - members, member firm personnel, CME Group employees and board members - who want to participate in our charitable giving. Thanks to their support, we are able to make a lasting impact in our communities.
