On Oct. 7, 2011, The Asia Foundation will host a delegation of leaders from China’s top philanthropic foundations and media outlets for a panel discussion with Asia Foundation and Give2Asia senior experts on China’s growing philanthropic environment and the role of the media in promoting transparency in the sector. The delegation’s visit to the U.S. is organized by the Beijing Normal University One Foundation Philanthropy Research Institute (BNU1), a joint initiative of the University and the One Foundation founded by Jet Li. As a result of increased media interest in philanthropic issues, BNU1 has expanded its training focus to include members of the media, in addition to nonprofit practitioners.

Wang Zhenyao, dean of Beijing Normal University One Foundation Philanthropy Research Institute and an Asia Foundation partner, is leading the delegation, which includes editors from China Business News, IFENG,, China Philanthropy Times, and others. Representatives from the Hua Min Charity Foundation, the Lao Niu Foundation, the Tencent Foundation, and several other foundations are also participating. While in San Francisco, the delegation will also meet with Half the Sky, the Google Foundation, Facebook, Twitter, and more. Earlier in their visit, they met with organizations and news outlets such as the Ford Foundation, Time Magazine, The New York Times, and the Clinton Foundation in New York.
