China is an extremely difficult environment to navigate for corporate donors. Financial and operational data of charities in China is hugely limited. Readily available data for grant makers, needed for benchmarking purposes or to help identify and vet potential domestic beneficiary or partner organizations, do not exist. What is more, the structure and regulatory environment governing the charity sector in China is vastly different from the West, making it very difficult for foreign companies to navigate it and gain comfort.

This webcast will provide insights and guidance for effective decision making on corporate philanthropy in China. It will detail what is currently known about the size, scale, and composition of the nonprofit sector and philanthropic giving in China, and will provide an overview of the unique features, key stakeholders, and major challenges the Chinese nonprofit sector faces. It will also provide practical guidance to corporate donors on how to address China-specific challenges about how to give, whom to work with, and what causes to support.

Audience: Corporate foundation, community engagement, corporate giving, and corporate social responsibility managers and executives
