Collaborative Partners

AAUW works with similar-minded organizations as collaborative partners to optimize outreach in advocacy and action. AAUW-MA members serve as liaisons to ensure representation of purpose and to maintain effective communication.

Founded in 1945, CARE is one of the world’s largest humanitarian aid agencies. Working side by side with poor people in 72 countries, CARE helps empower communities to address the greatest threats to their survival. Women are at the heart of CARE’s efforts to improve health, education and economic development because experience shows that a woman’s achievements yield dramatic benefits for her entire family. CARE is also committed to providing lifesaving assistance during times of crisis, and helping rebuild safer, stronger communities afterward.
