Uplifting Our Communities

Carter’s Cares is a corporate philanthropic program that focuses on helping children in need, with an emphasis on early childhood education.
Our charitable giving, both monetary and product, as well as our related volunteer efforts serve a diverse group of children and families. We seek to support children’s well-being by providing access to early childhood education through donations of clothing, books, and other resources.
Our community efforts contribute to our culture by creating opportunities to make a difference. We follow a three-pronged approach that involves our employees and customers:
  • Corporate Giving: The Company provides product and in-kind donations, while Carter’s Charitable Foundation, Inc. provides financial support to our charitable partners.
  • Employee Giving: Each year, eligible full-time U.S. and Canada employees can take advantage of 16 hours of paid volunteer time and $500 in gift-matching for qualifying donations.
  • Customer Giving: We engage with our customers to involve them in our charitable efforts through retail campaigns.
By 2030, we are committed to:

Quality Care for Children
Quality Care for Children’s (QCC) mission is to create a system that equips families and childcare providers with knowledge and resources to nurture and educate Georgia’s infants and young children.
Carter’s has been partnering with QCC since 2013 by providing grants from the Carter’s Charitable Foundation and providing volunteers for the organization. In 2022, the Carter’s Charitable Foundation donated $100,000 to QCC and a portion of those funds were used to support Scholastic Book Fairs for three childcare centers in the Atlanta area. The donation has also helped with creating book packs for nearly 500 children at family childcare learning homes across the state.
