Review for CARE (Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere), Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As another reviewer has noted, CARE uses nearly 90% of donations on its programs, and it meets all of the items on the Accountability & Transparency checklist. Apparently the rating gets knocked down a star mainly due to recent negative revenue growth. As for the high CEO salary, we should observe that it's a mere 0.06% of expenses--compared with lots of other charities, this is miniscule. I'm sure heading an organization of CARE's size and scope involves a heavy workload and great expertise, and you don't get top executives cheaply. Over the years I've seen lots of evidence of CARE's good work around the globe, and I'll continue to be a donor.
