In 2017, our foundation funded to collaborate with the Center for NPOs law of Peking University on “Research on Charitable Trusts”.
On one hand, this project conducts case studies of domestic practice of charitable trust based on the domestic facts, analyzes its structure and summarizes the legal issues; on the other hand, it conducts a comparative study by acquiring practice and legal system of overseas charitable trust system to provide reference for the development and improvement of domestic charitable trust system.
Through the study of this new type of charity - charity trust, we can promote the application and popularization of charitable trust in China and promote the participation of social strengths in philanthropy.
