The Future of Charity: Green Drinks Chinese Forum
Green Initiatives tackles the interesting topic of transparency in China's charities. "Chinese society in particular, has been concerned about transparency and efficiency of the charity system. The problems inherent in the traditional charity model have manifested through many facets, including compensation structure, fiduciary duty owed to the donors, the marketing/ advertisement spending, incentives for innovation and giving, etc. This doesn’t mean people should stop giving. How can we be sure that an organization is honest and legitimate? Where are our donations used most effectively? Charities? Non-profits? Social enterprises?" As usual, it's 30rmb if you RSVP on their website
ahead of time. Students and interns can get in free if they RSVP. Goes from 6-9pm. This event is in Mandarin only.
