Thanks for joining us for the 2020 Virtual Impact Awards! Save the date for November 17, 2021, where we will hold the 2021 Impact Awards in New York City at the Ziegfield Ballroom.

In the face of a once-in-a-generation pandemic, Americans once again came together to fight poverty and injustice everywhere. This year, CARE honored those activists, politicians, philanthropists, and leaders at the CARE 2020 Impact Awards.

For the first time, the CARE Impact Awards were a virtual experience, bringing together people from around the world to support those in crisis and to celebrate the contributions of women and girls. In a year of unprecedented disasters, we raised $1.6M for the CARE Crisis Response Campaign and celebrated those delivering real impact at home and abroad.
