Fundraising and administration
Like all organisations, CARE’s work relies on administration spending. 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.
CARE Australia's staff are committed to improving the lives of poor communities, bringing compassion and experience to CARE's work in developing countries. In 2013, 95% of staff were local citizens of the countries in which we work, reflecting our commitment to empower local people and ensure lasting impact.
