The China Foundation Center’s 5th Anniversary Celebration was succesfully held in Beijing’s Jianguo Hotel on November 25th. The event was entitled ‘Win-win collaboration: building a healthy philanthropic system together’. The meeting was hosted by the China Foundation Center, a platform for industrial information disclosure initiated by 35 well-known foundations, and supported by organizations such as the Dunhe Foundation (浙江敦和慈善基金会), China Children and Teenagers Fund (中国儿童少年基金会), Shanghai Charity Foundation (上海市慈善基金会), Zhishan Foundation (智善公益基金会), Hainan Disabled Person’s Federation (海南省残疾人基金会), and Chengdu Foundation for Disabled Person (成都市残疾人福利基金会).
The State Council Guidance on the promotion of the healthy development of philanthropy, published in 2014, which sets philanthropy as an important force in building a moderately prosperous society by 2020, constituted an important basis for the event. Over three hundreds guests from the government, foundations, international organizations, NGOs, scholars, enterprises and the media were invited. The discussion focused on topics such as important issues that need to be addressed for the construction of a philanthropic system, and the impact of China’s ‘one belt and one road’ policy on global philanthropy.
