AVPN has recently conducted a research on the state of development across China’s philanthropic sector, drawing insights from a total of 34 influential funders and resource providers active in China, alongside extensive desk research. The research highlights that the Chinese philanthropic sector will continue to grow both domestically and internationally, thus making it imperative to enhance its infrastructure and capacity in order to for large amounts of capital to be deployed and absorbed effectively.

In partnership with AVPN member, Narada Foundation, the roundtable will convene 15-20 leading foundations and intermediaries that are engaged in building up the philanthropy ecosystem in China. The objective of this roundtable is to share experiences and insights, spur discussions, and seek closer collaborations in an effort to grow the ecosystem and use resources effectively for greater social impact.

Join us to build a vibrant impact investment community across Asia!
