2021 Sees Online Charity Donations Soar to 10 Billion RMB in China

Tencent | May 23, 2022

Thanks to internet technology, online charity is becoming increasingly popular in China. Speaking at the China Internet Good Summit on May 20th, Wang Aiwen, vice minister of China's Ministry of Civil Affairs, said that in 2021, netizens donated nearly 10 billion RMB through online charities and channels, up 18% from the previous year. The summit brought together more than a hundred speakers from various fields, including government officials, charity representatives and entrepreneurs, as well as scholars from Oxford and Stanford Universities. Guests are expected to share their thoughts and discuss global philanthropic topics. The 10 billion RMB ($148 million) in donations raised through internet platforms in China doubled the 52 million pounds ($64.7 million) raised during the iconic annual Red Nose Day fund-raising campaign in 2021, demonstrating the strong development momentum of internet charity in China. In addition to the country's large population base, another major factor underpinning the rapid development of online charity is the popularization of mobile internet. Tencent (0700.HK), a leading tech company based in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, founded the nation's first online charity platform in 2007 and has witnessed its rapid growth over the past five years. In 2021, Chinese netizens made 150 million donations worth of 5.4 billion RMB through the Tencent platform, helping to raise it to the largest internet charity platform globally. According to Alibaba, another major Chinese tech firm, more than 500 million Chinese consumers made philanthropic purchases through its Tmall and Taobao e-commerce platforms, benefitting 2,450 charitable projects organized by 214 philanthropic institutions. The rapid development of mobile internet in China penetrates geographic boundaries, allowing consumers to participate in a variety of charitable initiatives nationwide. In a virtual booth set up during this year's Internet Good Summit, visitors can donate and "adopt" wild pandas living hundreds of miles away and watch live streams of their activities through a WeChat mini program called "Panda Home." Thanks to generous donations from Chinese netizens, 1,864 wild pandas in three Chinese provinces have been protected, reducing the risks of living space competition between humans and wild animals. Internet technology also enriches ways and means of doing philanthropy. For example, people can even donate their daily walking steps through a mobile app called "walking together." The app developer will donate a sum based on the number of steps users contribute. According to Tencent's online charity platform statistics over the past year, nearly 90 million took part in the program donating 1331.9 billion steps combined. Among them, one user donated nearly 70.23 million steps, equivalent to 46,819 kilometers. That's 6,743 kilometers more than the length of our planet's equator. Furthermore, Chinese internet companies have started to contribute their advanced technologies to the broader public welfare and charity sector, aiming to achieve greater good. In 2021, the Alibaba Charity Foundation released the industry's first blockchain standards for charities. This year, the Tencent Foundation allocated 200 million RMB to subsidize 1,000 digital charity professionals and fund 100 digital charity projects. The philanthropy industry still needs to tackle a set of challenges, including winning and maintaining public trust, establishing efficient operations and transparent reporting standards, as well as recruiting and retaining top talent, said Cambridge professor Christopher Marquis, who has been studying philanthropy for over a decade. However, the sector is ripe for continued growth, as disposable incomes increase, digital infrastructure enables easier access to charities, and the government actively participates by creating guidelines and policies to shape this sector, said Marquis.

CAEL receives $15.7 million grant from Truist Foundation to strengthen financial services career pathways

The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL); Truist Foundation | May 09, 2022

The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), a nonprofit organization helping adult learners navigate on- and off-ramps between education and employment, announced it has been awarded a $15.7 million grant from Truist Foundation. The CAEL and Truist Foundation partnership encompasses a six-year multicity initiative that prioritizes Black, Indigenous, and persons of color (BIPOC) as well as underserved communities by building career paths in professions and industries historically unavailable to them, such as financial services. "Our work with CAEL will provide the tools adult learners, workforce organizations, postsecondary institutions and service providers need to ensure individuals can secure a position and prosper within previously inaccessible industries," said Lynette Bell, president of Truist Foundation. "Beyond our grant, Truist Bank intends to partner with CAEL to hire some of the talented adult learners who participate in the initiative's career pathways." Championing adult learner success for more than 40 years, CAEL has established and grown partnerships with workforce organizations, employers, postsecondary education institutions, regions and communities across the nation. CAEL will be partnering with nationally recognized organizations for this initiative, including CareerWork$ (BankWork$ program), CollegeAPP, Emsi Burning Glass, PAIRIN, and Riipen. The supportive ecosystem created by CAEL's work and partnership with Truist Foundation will allow adult learners to gain access to meaningful employment while creating and sustaining a diverse talent pipeline for the financial services industry. This initiative will roll out in five communities over the next six years. CAEL's partnership with Truist Foundation will: Establish partnerships with local community colleges and postsecondary institutions to ensure all adult learners have access to affordable remote and in-person classes with flexible hours and curricula, prioritizing effectiveness for women and BIPOC adult learners. Establish partnerships with local Workforce Development Boards. Provide support and resources to workforce organizations in the region to connect more job seekers to higher-wage jobs and long-term career opportunities. Provide training and tools to organizations in the financial services industry to encourage them to hire talented and diverse adult learners and support them as candidates and employees, setting them up for success. Explore potential partnerships with service providers such as local child care centers, transportation services, mental health organizations and other areas to ensure services are available and accessible, allowing adult learners to face fewer barriers when entering the financial services workforce. This comprehensive support system aims to make it possible for women, BIPOC and other underrepresented adult learners to secure, persist and excel in their careers. A lack of coordination among postsecondary institutions, employers and workforce organizations has limited opportunities to promote diversity, equity and inclusion within many industries, including financial services. This generous support from Truist Foundation will allow CAEL to bring about collaboration among educators, workforce developers, employers and service organizations to build more equitable and comprehensive pathways into financial services and adjacent industries for adult learners who have long faced systemic barriers to rewarding occupations." Earl Buford, CAEL president Expensive hurdles such as education, transportation and child care prevent many qualified individuals from pursuing employment opportunities. CAEL's work and partnership with Truist Foundation will uplift individuals within an empowering career path, diversify the financial services sector, provide individuals the opportunity to generate sustainable and generational wealth and provide support and resources to workforce organizations and educational institutions. About CAEL Recognizing that adult learners are the backbone of the U.S. economy, CAEL helps forge a clear, viable connection between education and career success, providing solutions that promote sustainable and equitable economic growth. CAEL opens doors to opportunity in collaboration with workforce and economic developers, postsecondary educators, employers and industry groups, and foundations and other mission-aligned organizations. By engaging with these stakeholders, we foster a culture of innovative, lifelong learning that helps individuals, and their communities thrive. A national membership organization established in 1974, CAEL is a part of Strada Collaborative, a mission-driven nonprofit. About Truist Foundation The Truist Foundation is committed to Truist Financial Corporation's purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities. Established in 2020, the foundation makes strategic investments in nonprofit organizations to help ensure the communities it serves have more opportunities for a better quality of life.
