Where We Work

Charitable Trust Donations

Trusts, Foundations and Private Ancillary Funds (PAFs) enable Caritas Australia to deliver aid and development activities that make a real difference to the lives of the poorest of the poor in Australia and internationally.

Flexible Partnerships

Caritas Australia is open to discussing different options for partnerships with Trusts, Foundations and PAFs. We can provide specific information on a project of interest to donors, whether it is benefiting communities in a particular country or targeting a specific issue.

Why Caritas Australia?

  • Trusted: we are one of Australia’s largest international aid and development organisations and part of Caritas Internationalis, the second largest international and humanitarian network in the world.
  • Experienced: we have over 50 years’ experience working in development and partnering with Australian donors.
  • Accredited: we are fully accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs, which manages the Australian Government’s overseas aid program.
  • Accountable: strong reporting and financial systems to meet accountability requirements and demonstrate the impact that your gift makes.
  • Effective: low administration and fundraising costs, maintained within 12 per cent, one of the lowest ratios among Australian aid and development agencies.
  • Sustainable: we are mandated to maintain a low reliance on Australian government funding so we can continue offering programs and support if government overseas aid is cut.
