Charities & Activism


China Care was founded by Matt Dalio, who at the age of 16 knew he wanted to make a difference in the lives of orphans in China. Although Matt was young, he had a vision of how he could help these orphans who have no one to speak out for them. Since its beginning, China Care has grown tremendously, allowing us to help more children than we ever thought possible. Through our Children’s Homes, Medical Program, foster care and adoption financial aid we touch countless lives each year. We invite you to learn more about our programs and how you can become involved in our work.

The mission is to give Chinese orphans the opportunity for a life of love and American families the means to provide it. And, in the process, to positively affect the lives of those who help as well as those who are helped, compelling all involved to pass the feeling on to others.
China Care achieves its mission by:

Sheryl Crow & Buddy Guy Rocked China Care Benefit
Invite-Only Fundraiser Raised Nearly $500,000 for Chinese Orphans

Greenwich, CT – September 13, 2004 – The China Care Foundation held its 2nd Annual “Feel Good Party of the Year” last Friday, September 10th at the Belle Haven
Club in Greenwich, CT, raising nearly $500,000 that will directly benefit Chinese orphans. This invitation-only gala raised money for the organization, which was established by Greenwich resident and 20-year old Harvard student, Matt Dalio.

The China Care Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping Chinese orphans and the amilies who adopt them. The event was completely underwritten, so all money raised went towards China Care projects. Over 350 benefactors of the China Care Foundation attended the evening‘s festivities which included an intimate concert with rocker Sheryl Crow and legendary blues artist Buddy Guy.

hina Care Foundation President & Founder Matt Dalio, recent press appearances include the Oprah Winfrey Show and Teen People magazine as one of the “20 Teens Who Will Change The World”.

“It has been a tough road but everything is falling into place,” said Dalio. “We have just opened our first children’s home, which will house up to 100 at-risk children a year. The special needs children will receive surgeries, therapy, proper nutrition and lots of love from our trained staff.” The non-profit recently established its first ever China Care Children’s Home in Taiyuan, China. Other projects include placing disabled orphans in Chinese foster care, renovating orphanages, and providing financial aid to American adopting families.

The China Care Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to uniting Chinese orphans and American adopting families. We assist by promoting and facilitating adoptions of Chinese children to American families; by contributing to better orphan care in China; and by giving support to special needs orphans and the families that adopt them.
