Dear CARE Legacy Society member,
I would like to personally thank you for your Legacy gift to CARE and for your incredible commitment to our mission of saving lives, defeating poverty and achieving social justice. Ever since our founding, CARE has sought to help people with the greatest need, whether they were in post-World War II Europe, famine-stricken Africa during the 1980s, tsunami-ravaged Asia during the 2000s, or in any of the 95 countries in which we work today.
You might remember that CARE once stood for Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe, then Cooperative for American Relief Everywhere, and now Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere. Though our name has changed over the last 70 years, much as the world has, CARE has always been — and will continue to be — dedicated to the dignity of people and the pursuit of a world without poverty.
While this world is full of challenges, it is not without its successes: since 1990, global poverty has fallen by one billion people, tens of millions more children are attending school, and child mortality has dropped by half.
Your Legacy gift helps to ensure that CARE can continue this fight against global poverty and that our live-saving programs reach millions more in the generations to come. I am deeply grateful for your outstanding generosity and your trust in CARE. Thank you.
President & CEO
