CARE President's Circle - CARE

CARE President's Circle

A group of kids crowd together to look out of a schoolroom window. Three of the kids are holding up hands in the shape of hearts in front of their faces.

The President’s Circle is a dedicated group made up of CARE’s most committed supporters—those whose contributions make an enormous impact on our mission to end poverty. To join, donors make an annual one-time gift of $1,000 or make a cumulative gift of $2,500 annually.

Join us in the fight to end poverty

Today, CARE is working in over 100 countries reaching more than 100 million people through our work. Every person who we support is working to achieve their own hopes and dreams despite facing some of our global community’s most dire challenges – conflict, rising costs, food shortages, and long-lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, all of which disproportionately impact women and girls.

From all of us at CARE: welcome! We are so grateful for your dedication to CARE’s mission of saving lives, ending poverty, and achieving social justice.

Ways to give

As a member of the President’s Circle, your generosity empowers women and girls all over the world to break the barriers they face and uplift their communities. Here are some other ways that you can create a lasting impact:

Support CARE via a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving fund administered by a third party that allows you to combine favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support CARE. It is created to manage your charitable donations.

Contribute Stocks or Mutual Funds

CARE gladly accepts stock, mutual funds, and other securities. The most valuable gifts are undesignated and support CARE’s mission to defeat poverty.

Give from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can give any amount — up to a maximum of $100,000 — per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as CARE without having to pay income taxes on the money. Since your gift doesn’t count as income, it can also help you save on taxes!

Create a legacy of giving through a Planned Gift

When you include CARE as part of your legacy, your generosity enhances our global work to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice. We have resources to help you plan for your and your family’s future while also making a difference for people around the world.
