Perhaps the greatest impediment to donors in any country, and also one additional explanation for creation of large foundations and gifts directly to government, is the absence of significant scale charitable organizations asking for money. The charitable impulse has always existed in Asia generally and China specifically. But "altruism" alone does not give a prospective major donor the knowledge or confidence to make a significant charitable investment. Major Donors need choices and they need to be invited to give. Once that happens on a larger scale, as it has begun to do at some of China's universities, China's wealthy will give much more and more often.
