Funding Funding

CARE Australia is primarily funded by the Australian public and Australian Government.

CARE Australia is primarily funded by the Australian public and Australian Government.

CARE Australia is primarily dependent on the generous support from the Australian public and Australian Government to continue our vital work.

With the support and generosity of people like yourself, in addition to countless project partners and dedicated staff, we can continue to strive for a more equal world free from poverty.

Thank you to our Australian Government and to DFAT, who enable us to continue our life saving work in recognition of the important role that CARE and other Australian NGOs play in development.  CARE Australia, alongside other likeminded community organisations, are powerful agents of change often working in places that are hard to reach such as remote, fragile or disaster affected areas.   The development work by CARE adds to the depth and reach of Australia’s aid program and help add a particular focus on supporting women and girls.


How to partner with us

We are the trusted NGO partner of internationally-renowned companies in Australia and around the world.

We believe working together with the private sector is an effective way of solving complex global challenges, with benefits for both companies and communities.

That’s why we partner with businesses of all sizes to identify opportunities to connect their goals with our mission and work.

CARE places women and girls at the heart of our work because we believe this leads to better returns—for the communities we work with and for our business partners.
