The Draft aims to set a bottom line for the annual expenditures for charity activities of different types of charitable organizations. Certified public fundraising foundations’ annual expenditures shall exceed 70% of the total revenue of the previous year, while their management fees shall not exceed 10% of the annual expenditures of the same year. The annual expenditures of social groups and social service organizations with a public fundraising certificate shall be no less than 70% of the total revenue of the previous year, while their management fees shall not exceed 13% of the annual expenditures of the same year.

The Draft also sets a variety of standards for charitable organizations without a public fundraising certificate according to their net assets at the end of the previous year.
