Different from China Development Brief’s online database of NGOs and NGOCN’s online communication platform for NPOs , the Ministry of Civil Affairs and the China Charity Donation and Information Center recently launched the China Charity Information Platform (CCIP). CCIP’s mission is to increase efficiency and transparency within China’s social sector.
The site is comprised of several different sections. The main homepage includes a list of current events in the sector and has several different rankings such as a list of foundations based on most assets, outgoing funds, and donations received. A map allows viewers to search for organizations by province. There is also a list of organizations, corporations, individuals, foundations, and charity events ranked based on the highest donation rate.
The CCIP database includes over 1,600 entities from across the social sector such as foundations and public institutions to social organizations and civil non-business institutions. Viewers are able to search for organizations through a detailed list of over 20 subsectors ranging from human services, education to disaster relief and poverty alleviation. These subsectors are then broken down into even more specific subcategories. Each organization has an individual page, which gives an overview of the organization’s objectives and lists donations received, and where the funds spent. Some organizations even have their annual audit report available for download. CCIP also includes a directory of projects that viewers are able to rate based on the detailed information included.
As the site is newly launched, many organizations are missing information but the infrastructure of the site shows the creators intend to go beyond giving simple overviews. The site is currently only in Chinese and is focused primarily on foundations and public institutions.
