For the past year, I have been involved in a research project led by the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy that has been looking closely at philanthropy in China. On October 31 and November 1, I’ll be presenting initial findings from our work at the China Philanthropy Summit in Indianapolis, IN. The conference is the part of a three-year “Initiative on Philanthropy in China” project funded by the Henry Luce Foundation and the Ford Foundation, and jointly carried out by the Indiana University Research Center for Chinese Politics & Business (RCCPB) and the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy (see more about the initiative here).
The Conference Board China Center’s project is one of 11 research efforts from institutions such as the University of Wisconsin, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Maryland, Tsinghua University, and Sun Yat-Sen University. In the course of our work, we have looked at international corporate engagement in the development of China’s philanthropic sector. Specifically, the China Center has studied the basis upon which U.S. corporate foundations identify grantee organizations or areas of funding in China, and the impact of current corporate funding patterns on the Chinese nonprofit sector.
Summit details Date: October 31-November 1
Location: Hine Hall, 850 W. Michigan Street, Indianapolis, IN on the Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus. If you happen to be in the area, please join us. The conference is free and open to the public.
