Giving back is part of FIA’s belief that beyond markets there are communities. Our charitable activities focus on helping communities and the people that create them thrive. FIA supports a variety of charities through our annual conferences and other events and takes part in the charitable activities of our members and the broader cleared derivatives community. Additionally, we profile the charitable efforts of our members in MarketVoice, FIA's flagship publication.

Greater Chicago Food Depository
The Greater Chicago Food Depository is Chicago’s food bank — a non-profit food distribution and training center that provides food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in the community. The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of more than 700 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other programs that address the root causes of hunger. In 2018, the Food Depository distributed more than 69 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 159,000 meals every day.
