Charity summit benefits Qinghai

THE first China Philanthropy Network Summit will be held next Friday at the Chateau 599 Boutique Lifestyle Center in Shanghai.

Co-hosted by Z Fair Magazine and the Channel Young Media Co Ltd, the event is aimed at providing a network for developing the country's philanthropy with transparent and specialized administration in a professional way.

Various charity foundations, government departments, entrepreneurs, benefactors and investors will attend the charity night.

With the theme of "brands and social responsibility," the event will focus on some of the hottest topics in China's charity sector, including the country's future philanthropy strategy, its sustainable development and operation, China's philanthropy environment as well as the added value of brands, among others.

It will offer a platform of communication and real solutions for entrepreneurs who are devoted to charity undertaking.

The event will award "10 benefactors of the year" on the charity night, followed by a charity auction.

Part of the donations collected from the auction will be used to help orphans in the Tibetan region of Qinghai Province go back to school.

"The value of today's entrepreneurs and wealthy people in China has changed tremendously," says Grace Ban from the event's organizing committee. "Wealth is not only a symbol for social status but also an indispensable part of their life.

"To promote a healthy and ecological life as well as to drive China's charity causes have gradually become mainstream and part of these elites' social responsibilities, which is exactly what this charity night is supposed to do," she says.
