Where the money goes in our charity work

We pride ourselves on being one of the most  reputable charities in Australia. We work hard to ensure your donation makes the biggest impact – read here for more information on donation effectiveness.

In 2021/22, CARE Australia spent:

89% of total expenditure on our development, resilience and humanitarian programs, including education programs in Australia to raise awareness of poverty overseas
6% of donations were reinvested to raise future funds
5% of donations were spent on accountability, 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.

Donation effectiveness – our global impact on those who need it most

We thank our 22,785 donors who contributed $12.3 million to our work over the past year. Every dollar counts. And that support helped us generate a further $65.4 million from other sources. It’s through the incredible generosity of Australians that we were able to directly assist more than 1.44 million people across 14 countries.

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