CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in 100 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from disaster response to food and nutrition to education and work for women and girls to healthy mothers and children. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because when they have equal access to resources, they lift their families and communities out of poverty. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for 75 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and Fight with CARE.

75 years ago, a small group of Americans sent the world’s first CARE package. They refused to stand on the sidelines while millions of Europeans faced starvation. Much has changed since World War II but CARE’s commitment to helping people has not.
Today CARE is a leader in global development. CARE staff strengthen health in Honduras. Advance gender equity in Ethiopia. Reduce poverty in Pakistan. Mitigate climate change in Cote d’Ivoire. With an annual budget of $650 million and a global team of more than 6,000, CARE works in 100 countries around the world to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.
Institutional Funding at CARE
As part of CARE’s successful revenue group, CARE’s Institutional Funding & Strategy team leads CARE’s business development and bidding with the US Government and other key institutional funders. The team works across the global CARE confederation and functions like a well-oiled machine. We are executing well against our growth strategy and with sophisticated systems and the power of 30 professionals, we proactively position CARE and respond to donor opportunities with ease. We are growing our reputation and our revenue in development and humanitarian programming and last year the team secured over $200 million in new project awards from US Government and other institutional donors.
We’re looking for a new world-class conductor for our business development orchestra. Someone to lead our global multi and bilateral resource mobilization efforts. Inspire an ensemble of proposal coordinators and managers, cost/pricing specialists, recruiters, and researchers and listen to and support the needs of CARE’s amazing Country Offices. Ensure that leaders of NGOs and donor agencies hear the music of CARE.
There are individuals who may use CARE’s name and trademark in emails and on websites in an attempt to solicit fees from interested job-seekers. Some examples of these fees are placement fees or immigration processing fees. CARE does not use recruiting or placement agencies that charge candidates an up-front fee of any kind. Occasionally, CARE does employ recruiting or placement agencies to help us identify candidates for specific employment within CARE. If you’re contacted by a legitimate recruiting or placement agency, there should be no charge to you. If you suspect that you have been a victim of fraud from someone purporting to be CARE, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
