The Humanitarian Coalition

The Humanitarian Coalition is a joint appeal mechanism. It is comprised of Canadian Lutheran World Relief, CARE Canada, Islamic Relief Canada, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam-Québec, Plan Canada and Save the Children Canada. With a combined presence in more than 120 countries, we bring together Canada's leading aid agencies to finance relief efforts in times of international humanitarian crises. We work together to eliminate unnecessary competition, reduce the duplication of fundraising costs, and inform the public on humanitarian needs.

By collaborating, we are able to keep appeal management expenses to a maximum of 12%, thus allocating 88% of donations to programming.

Membership in the Humanitarian Coalition is open, but limited to registered Canadian charities with established expertise and capacity in international humanitarian response.

CARE is a proud founding member of the Humanitarian Coalition.
