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.

In-depth dialogue

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.

He said that the foundation forum will give priority to supporting the development of the foundation's core competence, making the foundation have more development resources, promoting the complete and positive interaction of the foundation industry's ecological elements, creating a social environment to support the development of the foundation, as well as the record summary and knowledge production of the local foundation in China. He hoped that the foundation industry could work together to solve social problems and promote Social innovation.

The forum was hosted by Chen Lin

The forum was hosted by Chen Lin, the Secretary General of Shanghai Zijiang Foundation and the founder of ECN University Zijiang Center of Philanthropy. Chen Lin pointed out that since its establishment in 2017, Zijiang Center has been committed to building an intra industry communication platform and improving discipline construction and talent training. It is hoped that this forum will promote the dialogue between scholars and experts in the industry, share the experience in the practice of public welfare education, and bring new ideas and inspirations to China's public welfare education.

Professional public welfare talents training should return to the source of Education

Tong Shijun, the secretary of the Party committee of East China Normal University, put forward in his opening speech that with China's economic and social development entering a new stage, the significance of public welfare charity for building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way and realizing people's yearning for a better life is increasing. At the same time, the requirements for the professional quality of public welfare talents are more and more important.

Tong Shijun introduced that the School of Social Development of East China Normal University started earlier in the talents training. At the beginning of 2017, with the support of Zijiang foundation, a relatively systematic training course for charitable talents was opened. By October 2019, nearly 800 people had participated in the course.

Tong Shijun said that public welfare education is the foundation and support for the development of philanthropy undertakings. The development of philanthropy education is consistent with the original intention and mission of establishing morality and cultivating people in East China Normal University. The development of Zijiang Center should be promoted simultaneously with the exploration of talents training in the school, making public charity education becomes the fine tradition of East China Normal University.

A interdisciplinary perspective on the new situation of non-profit organizations leadership

He Jiangying, the senior partner of Korn Ferry international and general manager of life science industry in Asia Pacific region, attended the forum and delivered a speech entitled Leadership in Developing and Cultivating Public Talents. She suggested that the trend of big data and other advanced technologies will reshape the structure of non-profit organizations. However, the limited resources, the lack of strategic objectives and performance indicators, and the maladjustment of talent demand pose a great challenge to the development of non-profit organizations. In this regard, He Jiangying proposed that under the new situation, the leaders and practitioners of non-profit organizations are not purely business oriented, they should take social innovation and social influence into account, and constantly improve the corresponding driving force and personal ability to meet the challenges of development.

Jump outside the box to explore the end point of public talents education

This forum has launched a multi-dimensional discussion on philanthropy talents education, and the guests have contributed their perspectives from the perspectives of research institutions, practical institutions and the government.

Discussion on the demand of public talents and the structure of talents

  • At present, there is a lack of philanthropy talents, especially for composite talents:

Huang Haoming, the vice president of the Institute of international public welfare, pointed out that according to the relevant research on the average number of employees of Chinese social organizations in the past 15 years, the number of full-time employees that can be employed by a social organization is 11.9, and by 2019, the number of social organizations nationwide has reached 835000, with an employment population of about 10 million, and there is still a lack of 30 million employment in China. Huang Haoming pointed out that the current public welfare industry needs compound talents with three qualities of governance, implementation and adherence.

② Need to improve the top-level design and build the talent Incubation Platform:

Zhang Jing, the director of the vocational and social work and Volunteer Service Department of Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau, pointed out that the foundation fund in Shanghai has reached more than 20 billion yuan, which provides a more favorable guarantee for the cultivation and introduction of cross-border talents. Zhang Jing believes that the government needs to improve the top-level design, build a talent incubation platform, and play a positive role in the cultivation of public talents.

③ Both personnel training and cross-border introduction should be focused on:

Sun Chunmiao, the Deputy Secretary General of Dunhe foundation, put forward that the core purpose of philanthropy is to mobilize more people to participate in public issues, and professional people are to refine the general ability to achieve excellence. At the same time, we should import more talents and resources gap from the internal and external aspects to meet the need of talents.

In the theme discussion of Innovation Mode of philanthropy Education in Universities, Liu Zhiyang, the vice president of business school and executive vice president of entrepreneurship School of Shanghai University of Finance and economics, put forward that the ultimate purpose of charity is to shape ‘complete mind’ and realize ‘modernization of human beings’. He suggested that we should focus on business innovation, science and technology innovation and education innovation to realize the dual mission of public welfare and human development.

Li Jian, the executive director of the research center of the foundation of the Central University for nationalities, believes that charity education in Colleges and universities should start with policy design and curriculum system research and development. At the same time, it is necessary to strengthen the cooperation between colleges and universities and the community of public welfare practice, so as to jointly cultivate new public welfare talents in line with the development of the times.

Zhang Li, a researcher and partner of Yeqing Social Innovation Center, believes that the cultivation of public welfare talents should be improved in many aspects, such as industry upstream, specific projects, talent deep processing and human resource allocation.

Discussion on the innovation mode of public welfare education in Universities

In the afternoon, we held four sub forums to carry out dialogues on the four themes of matching the needs of public talents with college education, college public welfare projects from the perspective of students, college social innovation and youth participation, public welfare research.

Li Zhiyan, the secretary-general of the funder Roundtable forum, LV Quanbin, the secretary-general of the China Foundation Development Forum, Xie Jiachen, the Professor of the school of public welfare and charity management, Pujiang college, Nanjing University of technology, Xu Jialiang, Dean of the China Institute of public welfare development, Shanghai Jiaotong University, and Yang Ye, deputy secretary-general of the Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation, attended the roundtable Forum on matching the needs of public talents with college education, and discussed the cooperation between higher education and practical institutions.

At the end of the forum, Wen Jun, a distinguished professor of Changjiang Scholars of the Ministry of education and Dean of the school of social development of East China Normal University, delivered a closing speech.

Closing speech by Wen Jun

In his speech, Wen Jun pointed out that the essence of education is to awaken the conscience and kindness of the whole society through the training of professional methods.

The forum is based on the dialogue between University researchers and practitioners. From a multi-dimensional perspective, the guests discussed what kind of public talents we need and what kind of possible appearance of public talents training in different levels and fields, which well echoed the forum theme of Sollen und Sein. At the same time, he put forward his hope for the future, hoping that on the basis of this forum, the next year's public welfare talent training forum will have a more differentiated development discussion.
