China Foundation under the great changes
Since the establishment of the first foundation in New China in 1981, China Foundation has adhered to its mission and value, explored and practiced in the fields of poverty alleviation, poverty relief, disaster relief, promoting the development of education and health, protecting and improving the ecological environment, which has played a positive role in solving social problems and promoting social innovation.
Today's world is in a great change, harder than ever before. As a responsible big country, China has taken on more and more important tasks of promoting global common development. As an important social force, foundation also plays its own role in this process.
According to Tao Chuanjin, a professor at the school of social development and public policy of Beijing Normal University, the number of foundations is increasing, the amount of funds raised is increasing, the spirit of industry contracts and the awareness of rules are also increasing, so we can look at the development prospects of China's foundation industry and even the public welfare industry with optimism. But there are also challenges in optimism, such as the "gold rush" brought by the rapid increase of Internet fund-raising, and many problems in administrative supervision and rating evaluation.

In the current changing social background, the foundation should not only practice its internal skills, lay a solid foundation for the compliant and efficient high-quality development, but also take the overall situation into consideration and devote itself to national construction and social governance.
Sun Boying, the deputy secretary of the Party committee and Secretary of the Discipline Inspection Commission of the school of public management of Renmin University of China, made a breakthrough from the perspective of national governance. According to Sun Boying, the biggest proposition of a country in the process of modern development is how to deal with the complexity brought by differentiation, diversity, fragmentation and heterogeneity. China is the concentric circle structure of the party center, facing the problem of how to build a community of social governance. Only by making society more dynamic can the whole country become better and stronger.

Xu Hongcai, the deputy director of Economic Policy Committee of China Policy Science Research Association, pointed out that China's economic growth has shown great resilience under the complex and severe external environment from the perspective of economic development, but the downward pressure on the economy is still very large. The process of urbanization, the reform of state-owned enterprises, the new round of reform and opening up and the bonus of talents are expected to release the potential of sustainable development. At the same time, there is great potential to realize the modernization of national governance mechanism and governance capacity.

Focusing on the theme of "sticking to the original heart", Song Houliang, the founder of Social Innovator, Chen Yimei, the Secretary-General of Vanke Public Welfare Foundation, Peng Yanni, the Secretary-General of Nandu Public Welfare Foundation, Wang Juan, the Director-General of Beijing Love Decibel Public Welfare Foundation, Wang Xingzhi, the executive vice director of China Poverty Alleviation foundation, Yuan Li, the founder and Director-General of Shanghai Yuanli Public Welfare Foundation, and Hunan Honghui Education Development Foundation Zhang Fan, chairman of the Gold Council, all shared the original intention of public welfare and the way to stick to it with their own experiences.
Conspiring for the Industry Construction of Foundation
The round-table conference was hosted by Li Jin, the vice president and Secretary General of Beijing Sany Public Welfare Foundation. Around the industry construction and social development, many senior foundation representatives expressed their views.
The round-table conference
Dou Ruigang, the executive secretary of Tencent charitable foundation, proposed that in the context of modernization of national governance system and governance capacity, foundations may be an important carrier for the third distribution. In addition, the connection between people, the reconstruction of trust and the reconstruction of knowledge system are also the values of foundation in the current society.
Li Hong, the secretary general of Shenzhen One foundation, believes that the foundation is a catalyst and linker. At present, the cognition, understanding, research and analysis of social problems in the foundation industry are not enough and need to be improved. He pointed out that the foundation also needs to strengthen the support for the public welfare industry. "If the foundation does not provide resources to support the industry, it is difficult to imagine where the resources will come from." He said.
Sun Chunmiao, the deputy secretary general of Zhejiang Dunhe Charity Foundation, believes that the value of the foundation lies in the integration of resources and the promotion of social change. Compared with five years ago, the industry as a whole is booming, but the fuzzy areas are gradually expanding, and even the space is being squeezed. In the long run, the foundation should play the role of value leading, promote the real change of this society, and enable our society to achieve collective evolution.
Wang Shuwen, the secretary general of Guangdong Qianhe community public welfare foundation, said that the foundation has always played a role in supporting the development of grassroots social organizations, and is also a bridge to promote social integration. He believes that the public welfare industry should change its language system, return to common sense and have more communication with other industries. Under the policy incentive and other factors, the future industry will show a small and stable process of slow growth, and the prospect is optimistic.
Zhang Yuan, the secretary general of Alxa See Ecological Association, believes that the bottleneck of foundation industry development lies in three aspects: people, money and ideas. We should open the door, absorb all kinds of talents, expand our horizons; learn to invest in financial management, maintain and increase value, and strengthen the study of relevant policies; front-line workers should try to summarize what they have seen and heard, sort out some thoughts, and record and inherit the problems and thoughts they have encountered.
Facing the changing social and industrial background, China Foundation Development Forum 2019 Conference closely follows the development trend and sets up 12 parallel forums. The parallel forum with the theme of "catalyzing regional public welfare Ecology: opportunities and responsibilities of foundations" is based on a comprehensive and in-depth scanning and investigation of the foundations committed to supporting the development of local public welfare undertakings in Fujian Province, and summarizes the basic model of Fujian foundation supporting the development of public welfare ecology. Through the Fujian model and the national perspective, it shows that local foundations are promoting regional public welfare Exploration and practice in the development of state.
In addition, the parallel forum not only discussed industrial infrastructure, scale of public welfare projects, international exchanges, urban and rural children's services, but also other issues to meet the needs of different participants. The annual conference promotes the ideological collision of participants and conspires for the future development of the industry.
Stick to the original intention and move on
Li Yulin, the founder of Public Capital Studio, shared his thoughts on the foundation industry from the perspective of media workers. He believes that in recent years, the foundation industry is keen to discuss grand social issues, while ignoring the mission of the foundation is to promote social innovation. At the same time, he said that many foundations have begun to respond to the complex environment with a positive attitude, try to embrace the uncertainty of the times, return to the details and start to innovate, and look for new opportunities for systematic change.

In his concluding remarks, Chen Yueguang, executive director and Secretary General of Zhejiang Dunhe Charity Foundation, pointed out that "public welfare is our way and pursuit of life, and taking it as our ambition is the common aspiration of public welfare people." He believes that knowledge production, infrastructure construction and ecosystem construction are three urgent and important tasks in the industry construction.

"China's public welfare ecology is still very backward." Xu Yongguang, one of the promoters of China Foundation Development Forum and President of Nandu Public Welfare Foundation, pointed out in his closing speech that the social mobilization and public participation of China's public welfare are insufficient. In the future, it is necessary for public foundations, charities and public welfare service organizations to unite to make the public welfare culture penetrate into enterprises and communities, and carry out social governance innovation with the government.
