With you by our side, CARE has spent the past 75 years tackling the world’s greatest challenges. Instead of pausing to celebrate this milestone, we are putting those 75 years of experience to work fighting COVID-19, the first global pandemic of many of our lifetimes.

CARE is on the front lines of this crisis, fighting in 100 countries to ensure the safety of millions of vulnerable people, but we need to do more. That’s why we’re asking you to join us to raise $100 million in order to build back a stronger, more equitable and secure future for all.

The original CARE Package® is born. Lincoln and Alice Clark came up with the name - ‘Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe,' so that the initials themselves would also have a meaning – CARE.
