Since 1971, we’ve invested in nearly 1,400 conservation research projects in more than 120 countries. Around 85 percent of our budget directly supports research and engagement programs. The majority of our costs are funded by companies, charitable trusts and foundations, international institutions, government agencies, individual memberships and donations, and other sources. Like all charities, Earthwatch must fundraise to pay for its core operating costs, which are only partly funded by the contributions of expedition volunteers.
We are a leading funder of scientific field research in the non-profit sector. Research we support has resulted in the publication of hundreds of peer-reviewed articles in top journals. We support research in:
• Wildlife and ecosystems
• Ocean health
• Climate change
• Archaeology and culture
We work with emerging conservationists in developing countries thanks to a number of generous trusts and corporate partners. Since 1995, more than 1,600 individuals have benefited from this initiative.
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE places a special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.
CARE focuses on serving individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Drawing strength from global diversity, resources and decades of experience, CARE promotes innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility.
CARE focuses on creating lasting change by:
• Strengthening capacity for self-help
• Providing economic opportunity
• Delivering relief in emergencies
• Influencing policy decisions at all levels
• Addressing discrimination in all its forms
Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, end gender-based violence, providing healthcare and nutrition, increasing access to clean water and sanitation, expanding economic opportunity and protecting natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
All children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world. That means equal access to services and care that can make all the difference in children’s lives. It means working to achieve gender fairness and equality.

The world doesn’t stand a chance without water. It spreads disease, compromises safety and makes education elusive and economic opportunity farther out of reach. The lack of access to safe water is deadly, dangerous, and a major obstacle to the people of developing nations becoming economically empowered. It is what is standing between billions of people and their health, safety, and the opportunity to unlock their true potential.
We know how to bring people safe water and improved sanitation. We’re not waiting for a magic cure. And the solutions are simple and cost-effective. On average, every one US dollar invested in water and sanitation provides an economic return of four US dollars. For only $25, Water.org can bring someone access to safe water.
