Join us for the 2020 CARE Impact Awards on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City.

Through events like the Impact Awards Dinner, CARE continues to build strong foundational support from global-minded corporate investors and individual philanthropists who are motivated by our most forward-thinking, innovative work and bold vision. 

At the 2019 CARE Impact Awards we raised $2.1M to fight global poverty!

On behalf of all of us at CARE and the millions we serve around the globe, thank you for joining us last night at the 2019 CARE Impact Awards Dinner. Never in our shared history has there been a time where this work has been more needed or more important. You are part of a global community working to solve the biggest problems of our time. We can’t thank you enough for joining us in the movement to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice around the world.
