Where the money goes Where the money goes

We work hard to ensure your donation makes the biggest impact.

In 2016, CARE Australia spent:

  • 90% of total expenditure on our programs, including 2% on education programs in Australia to raise awareness of poverty overseas
  • 7% was reinvested to raise future funds
  • 3% was spent on 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.

Thanks to your support, in our last financial year, CARE Australia helped improve the lives of more than 2.8 million people in 23 countries across Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

Over $59 million was spent on international programs, bringing millions of people out of poverty and creating a more equal world.

To help us assist even more people, please donate to CARE Australia’s lifesaving work today.
