The future two decades will be a peak stage for the inheritance of Chinese wealthy family, during which a great deal of family wealth and responsibilities will be transferred to the next generation from the current generation. Philanthropy participation of the next generation is not only significant for the success of the family legacy, but also has a significant positive influence on the full development and balanced development of the Chinese society.
