For the past 40 years, StockCross Financial Services has grown deep roots in the communities where we are located.
On a local level, our employees rally to support education, youth athletics, medical research, assistance to the homeless, and other programs through fundraising, financial contributions and volunteer efforts.
Companywide, StockCross and our financial service partners support two philanthropic initiatives that hit very close to home.
Gerry Mastrianni (1967-2008) was the former Managing Director of Trading at StockCross Global in Lake Mary, Florida. To many of us, he was a colleague and a friend. To many more, he was an inspiration.
Gerry fought valiantly against Hodgkin's Disease, a form of Lymphoma. During his ongoing treatment at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute (FHCI), he met many children who were fighting alongside him. In their honor, Gerry established Trading for a Cure, a one-day annual event during which trading profits are donated to a charity of StockCross' choosing.
On November 10th, 2008 Gerry Mastrianni passed away and his personal fight with Cancer came to an end. Through Trading for a Cure, StockCross honors Gerry's spirit and mission by raising hundreds thousands of dollars for charitable organizations since 2008 and and continues its mission of reaching out to a variety of organizations in service of the community.

Association for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies (The ABCs)
Established in 1990, the ABCs was born out of a group of dedicated philanthropists who had originally been associated with the Eddie Cantor Charitable Foundation. The ABC's mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast and prostate cancer in our lifetime by providing funding for clinical innovation and research through its partnership with the John Wayne Cancer Institute. Through its partnerships and initiatives, they hope to raise awareness about measures through education about promoting good breast and prostate health.
The ABCs has a long and fruitful partnership with the John Wayne Cancer institute. Over the years it has raised over 10 million dollars to support the institute's research in advancing the treatment and detection of both breast and prostate cancer. The Center now has over 7,500 patient visits per year and has become a leader in the field, providing a model for breast centers around the nation.
