Stamford, Conn. Dec. 20, 2022 – Americares is the 10th largest charity in the United States in 2022, according to Forbes Magazine. The annual list ranks the 100 largest U.S. charities, by private donations. Americares, the health-focused relief and development organization, brought in $1.2 billion in private donations during the most recently reported fiscal year.

“This ranking reflects the trust our donors have in Americares,” said Americares President and CEO Christine Squires. “We are so grateful for their continuous support and are incredibly proud of the work we’ve been able to achieve together to reach even more people in need.”

A leader in the humanitarian sector, Forbes also awarded Americares a score of 99 percent for its fundraising efficiency (the percent of private donations remaining after fundraising expenses) and 98 percent for its charitable commitment (the percent of a charity’s total expenses that directly support an organization’s mission).

Americares helps communities prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters; increase access, availability, affordability and acceptability of medicine and medical supplies; improve and expand clinical services; and prevent disease and promote good health. The organization also responds to more than 30 natural disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide each year, establishes long-term recovery projects and brings preparedness programs to communities vulnerable to disasters. Since its founding more than 40 years ago, Americares has provided more than $20 billion in aid to 164 countries, including the United States.
