Chinese Government Creates Philanthropy Partnership with Rockefeller Foundation

philanthropyIn the January 2014 issue of Town & Country Magazine there is an interesting article about Chinese philanthropy.

It points out that in the US, major foundations are rushing to give it all away and Chinese philanthropists are more closely following the Rockefeller style of philanthropy.

Members of the Rockefeller family and Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation, traveled to Bejing to meet with potential Chinese billionaires. Unlike the foundations that are moving toward sun setting at definite times, The Rockefeller Foundation has laid out plans that will take it well into its second century.

As the article notes, the Chinese government has recently started allowing private charities to act in concert with government initiatives for improving the environment. It will be very interesting to see what the Rockefeller/Bejiing partnership brings.
