The online platform celebrates its fifteenth anniversary in connecting volunteers with opportunities across China

Shanghai, China, December 8, 2020 /Xinwengao.com/ - What started out as a way to connect a handful of foreign companies in China with worthwhile volunteer activities has blossomed into a longstanding platform at CharityInChina.org with one of the largest private non-Renminbi donor lists.

“When we created CharityInChina.org in 2005, we wanted to solve a critical problem that especially foreign-based organizations had in raising funds and gaining volunteers in China,” says Danny Levinson, founder of CharityInChina.org and a technology company executive. “We found a strong desire by both foreign companies with a good eye towards corporate social responsibility and solo expatriates within China to seek out volunteer and donor opportunities with NGOs in China, and we found a strong need by especially foreign-based organizations operating in China to find stakeholders in China to assist them in their respective missions. After 15 years, we’re proud of the connections we continue to make.”

The ways nonprofit organizations and charities are registered and certified in China is different from in the West and in other locations in Asia, and this has often caused problems for organizations from outside of China when they either desire to raise funds in China or wholeheartedly undertake critical programs. China’s Charity Law in 2016 followed by the Overseas NGO Law in 2017 affect how they organize as non-profit organizations in Mainland China, and this differs from how they organize themselves in their home countries or even in the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong. For example, for many international organizations, they must find local Chinese charities or public interest groups to act as partners instead of undertaking activities on their own.

CharityInChina.org is not a charity or NGO. To utilize CharityInChina.org’s resources, an organization registers on the website and provides information about what they do, where they do it, and what they need. The company is then matched to individuals, who tell CharityInChina.org if they wish to donate time or donate funds; in which type of organizations they would like to participate; and their geographic preferences within Greater China.

Then CharityInChina.org simply emails the individual when an appropriate matching opportunity arrives from an organization. Some active individuals are emailed once a month, while others less often — it’s all based on the match algorithm.
