PtP Mode: Building A New Path for Charitable Organizations
Currently, many countries are founding private charitable foundations and funded non-profit organizations to solve social, economic, and environmental problems. China is also trying and putting efforts into this field. However, these foundations and organizations are facing shortage of funds. On the other hand, in these countries including China, capital gains of state-owned enterprises are gradually transforming from collective wealth into private properties. This type of transformation suffered opposition from the people.
Luckily, we have a win-win option to solve the two problems. If all or partial gains can be used as charitable donations to solve community problems, they will not only help lower the voice of anti-privatization but also bring about a revolution of philanthropy. The abovementioned idea is not just a theory. The team led by Prof. Lester M. Salamon from Johns Hopkins University has done research on more than 550 foundations born out of privatized transactions all over the world, including some of the world’s large foundations.
This time, Prof. Salamon will discuss findings from this study and explore the possibility of their application in China.
