China has one of the largest economies in the world, yet it remains a developing country with significant social and environmental issues. On the positive side, there is an increasing number of players involved in the social investment sector. China has the second largest number of billionaires in the world, and that has led to a greater pool of philanthropists, as well as the establishment of new foundations. Similarly, there is a growing number of private equity and venture capital firms embracing impact investment. Lastly, most of the top-tier universities now offer a philanthropy or social innovation program in an effort to professionalize and build the capacity of the sector.
The recently passed China charity law is meant to smoothen the registration process for non-profits, and increase the amount of funding by providing tax incentives to donors. This roundtable will discuss some of the pressing questions arising from the recent development:
- What are some of the trends in the social investment landscape in China?
- What are some of the latest updates on the type of organizations that have successfully registered under the new law?
- What are some of the challenges from a funder/donor’s point to consider?
