Why donate to CARE Australia

We pride ourselves on being one of the most effective and reputable charities in Australia. We work hard to ensure your donation makes the biggest impact.

In 2019/20, CARE Australia spent:

91% of total expenditure on our programs, including education programs in Australia to raise awareness of poverty overseas
6% was reinvested to raise future funds
3% was spent on administration and our talented people.

Our expert staff, strong accountability measures and world-class computer infrastructure all contribute to a better organisation and better aid outcomes.

That’s why when a small fraction of your donation goes to administration, it’s not taking away from the life-changing work that we do – it’s supporting it.

For more information, please visit our Annual Reports page or the where the money goes page.

Thanks to the support of our donors, in our last financial year, CARE Australia helped improve the lives of more than 2.4 million people in 25 countries across Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and the Pacific.

More than $63.1 million was spent on international programs, bringing millions of people out of poverty and creating a more equal world.

To help us assist even more people, please donate today.

Tax benefits of donating to charity

CARE Australia is deductible gift recipient (DGR), which means we are an organisation that can receive tax deductible gifts. Meaning any donations you make to CARE Australia over $2 are tax deductible.

There is no limit on how much can be claimed, but there is a limit to how much of your donation you’re able to claim in a financial year. This means that a deduction from a donation could reduce your taxable income to zero for a given year, but you are not able to create a loss.

By donation to CARE Australia you are supporting women around the world and helping to defeat poverty. Your donation will help those who need it most, delivering education and training, healthcare and clean water, nutritious food, and new ways to earn an income. And in times of crisis, your donation can help us deliver emergency relief.
