Midwest Committee for CARE

Chicago skyline, a field in Kansas, Minneapolis skyline

As we commemorate CARE’s 75th anniversary in 2020, we see a unique opportunity to engage our community in Chicago, Minneapolis and across the Midwest and expand our capacity to impact some of the most significant issues of our time, from climate change to the global refugee crisis.

The Midwest is home to an extraordinary wealth of talent— from designers to tech entrepreneurs, academics to farmers. As CARE both celebrates its legacy of 75 years as a humanitarian leader and looks to the future, we are convening a diverse and dynamic group of passionate individuals across the Midwest to work with us to defeat poverty, respond to humanitarian crises, and create a world where all people live with dignity and security.
