The first-ever Global Chinese Philanthropy Initiative (GCPI) introduces a dynamic platform for connecting Chinese and Chinese-American philanthropists in innovative ways. At the day-long conference on September 6, 2017 in downtown Los Angeles, over 200 guests had the opportunity to meet fellow philanthropists and build valuable, long-lasting relationships that are the foundation of the GCPI mission.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice-LA, in partnership with the UCI Long US-China Institute and UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, proudly presents Chinese and Chinese American philanthropists, family foundation officers, national funders, and special guest speakers the GCPI website launch and a press conference to create awareness and foster an environment for increased giving, effective institutions, an enabling sector, and ultimately, improved lives through a global philanthropic vision.

Global Chinese Philanthropy Initiative is a unique bilateral research project that examines the contributions of Chinese and Chinese American philanthropists in the U.S. and Greater China. It reveals dramatic increases in charitable giving among Chinese and Chinese American philanthropists, and seeks to illuminate giving trends, motivations and impacts among philanthropists. Causes such as higher education, health and international giving will be reviewed. Through academic and applied research, the initiative also examines the philanthropic ecosystems in both the U.S. and Greater China. The goal of GCPI is to stimulate and catalyze constructive dialogue among philanthropists, practitioners, researchers and policymakers in the U.S. and Greater China to facilitate charitable giving within today’s global community.

There is no registration fee for this event, but individuals may attend only by invitation.
