The APC Secretariat in Singapore hosted a delegation from China under the auspices of the upcoming China Charity Fair at our offices on 25 August 2016. The 15-member delegation consisted of representatives from regional and national foundations and research agencies working on the new China Charity Law. Laurence and Stacey shared APC’s mission and activities, along with the Asian philanthropy landscape with the audience.
The APC team itself also learnt much more about the regulatory change in China, particularly with regards to establishing charitable trusts. There was also a deepen exchange how best to mobilise philanthropists for social impact, how to understand and work with their motivations, and what China could learn from APC.
APC looks forward to hosting and partnering on such exchanges for Asian stakeholders so that we may better understand the emerging trends as well as contribute to the development of strategic philanthropy across the region.
