On January 1, 2017, China passed a law that impacts how US-based donors provide support to local NGO’s. In compliance with the new Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Administration of Activities of Overseas Nongovernmental Organizations in the Mainland of China (the ONGO Law), Give2Asia became one of the first philanthropic overseas NGOs to successfully register in China. With a vote of confidence from the Beijing Public Security Bureau, Give2Asia now has the ability to extend the grant making capacity of US-based corporations seeking to support local NGO’s in China.
 
The ONGO Law requires procedural changes to the grant making process in China, as well as increased administrative management. This webinar will provide the following:

  • Background on the ONGO Law
  • Overview of how grant making in China has changed, including details on:
    • Required procedural changes to grant making
    • New administrative management processes
    • Expected annual grant-making timeline
    • Temporary Activity Permission
    • Implications for your giving priorities in China

In order for us to address your queries better during the webinar, please submit your questions when you register. We look forward to your engagement. 

Best Regards,
Give2Asia Team
