After 40 years of rapid economic growth in the “Reform and Opening Up” era, China now has the second-highest tally of millionaires in the world. These newly wealthy individuals seek to carry on their legacy and to promote social values through family philanthropy. Meanwhile, the philanthropic sector as a whole is burgeoning. China passed its first Charity Law in 2016, expanding the field of charity from a focus on disaster relief, poverty alleviation, and education to encompass many other areas related to social welfare and sustainable development.
