“全球华人慈善行动—清华论坛”将于2018年6月28日在北京隆重召开

 “全球华人慈善行动—清华论坛”将于2018年6月28日在北京隆重召开

 最近十多年来,中国和美国华人的慈善捐赠方兴未艾,持续飙升。在中国,慈善组织在过去10年中增长了430%。在美国,华裔慈善组织在过去的14年中也增长了418%。随着中美两国慈善事业的蓬勃发展,两国的华裔慈善家、公益慈善工作者和慈善研究学者近年来不断寻求相互交流和分享经验。

“全球华人慈善行动—清华论坛”于2018年6月28日在清华大学苏世民书院隆重召开。该论坛是在清华大学和美国洛杉矶加州大学(UCLA)两所名校联手推动下,由清华大学华商研究中心和美国洛杉矶加州大学亚太中心联合主办,清华大学苏世民书院、尔湾加州大学梁氏美中研究院、中国华侨华人研究所和中国与全球化智库合办,并得到海内外多所大学的学术研究中心、基金会和公益慈善组织的大力支持。届时清华大学校长邱勇教授和副校长杨斌教授,洛杉矶加州大学校长Gene D. Block教授和主管国际研究与全球事务的副校长范芝芬教授,尔湾加州大学主管校友事务与发展的副校长Brian T. Hervey教授,中美两国重量级的慈善家,如香港恒隆地產董事長陈启宗、美国Highridge Partners公司创始人兼总裁梁仕源、美国华莱士ꞏ库尔特基金会董事长兼总裁Sue Van、美国SupChina创始人兼总裁郑安澜、华民慈善基金会理事长卢德之、山东步长制药股份有限公司董事长赵涛、怡海集团董事局主席王琳达、励媖中国联合公司创始人兼总裁陈玉馨,以及中美两国知名公益慈善组织负责人,如美国洛杉矶亚美公义促进中心创始人兼执行董事郭志明、美国唐仲英基金会执行董事梁为功、北京乐平公益基金会秘书长沈东曙、新加坡世界未来基金会的联合创始人兼秘书长陆波、北京老牛兄妹公益基金会理事长牛犇、荣程集团副总裁兼普济基金会理事长张君婷等将出席盛会。与会者还包括来自多所中美名校(如北京师范大学、中山大学、南开大学、美国南加州大学、尔湾加州大学、康奈尔大学等)的学院院长、知名教授和年青学者。主办方清华大学华商研究中心主任龙登高教授和洛杉矶加州大学亚太中心主任周敏教授将共同主持本次论坛。

“全球华人慈善行动—清华论坛”的主要议题涉及中国慈善事业的现状与发展,美国华人慈善事业现状与发展,美中两国华人慈善事业的比较,慈善与创新研究,慈善与教育,海外华商与慈善,以及慈善研究方法等。论坛将围绕“慈善、创新研究与人才培养”,“中国与海外华人慈善事业展望”,“新兴华人慈善事业”三大主题展开高端对话,并邀请美中四所大学的学院院长就“慈善研究与高等教育”的议题进行深入探讨。同时国内外学者就“多样化的全球华人慈善模式”和“慈善研究的比较视角”两大主题分享各自的学术研究的成果。

在此论坛上,美国洛杉矶亚美公义促进中心创始人和主席郭志明将重点报告“全球华人慈善行动”(GCPI)项目的首期研究结果。这项研究致力于推动持续性的研究和实践,首期研究从大量的统计资料中筛选出60位自2006年至2016年之间,在中国大陆、香港、澳门、台湾和美国捐赠一百万美元以上的华裔慈善家,分析他们的捐赠动因、目的和领域,从而归纳出中美两国华裔慈善家的捐赠趋势及其社会影响。项目主要资助者之一的梁仕源先生说:“这是我们五年计划的第一步,希望能够增进全球对华人慈善的广泛认识,并提升华人的慈善意识与影响。” 研究报告发现,在2008到2014年间,美籍华裔慈善家的大额捐赠金额占所有大额捐赠的1.2%,与他们在美国的人口比例相近。调查报告还有以下一些主要发现:

• 美籍华裔基金会数量的激增主要发生在最近几年,超过80%的基金会都成立于2000年以后。
• 四个主要美籍华裔基金会,包括唐仲英基金会、戴氏基金会、陈馨祥家庭基金会及程延焯基金会,总资产超过一亿美元。
• 在过去的十年间,中国非公募慈善基金会数目跳升了十倍,2016年高达3,980家。
• 2014年,老牛慈善基金会位居中国所有非公募基金会慈善捐赠之首,共捐出三千多万美元。

随着中国和美国华裔慈善组织和机构近10多年来的迅速增长,两国的华人慈善家越来越注重加强联系和交流经验。“全球华人慈善行动”的首期研究报告为此提出了一些有实际意义的建议,以增进两国的慈善组织和机构、社区组织,非政府组织和政府部门的沟通。

本届论坛旨在弘扬华人慈善精神和华商社会责任,彰显华人对全球和地方慈善事业的发展以及对世界繁荣与和平所作出的卓越贡献,建立网络和实体平台,为全球华人慈善家、业内人士和学术研究者提供在线互动、交流与合作的机会,联合海内外各方力量,为加强中美关系,以慈善事业为纽带营造人类命运共同体而继续努力。

“全球华人慈善行动—清华论坛”的举办,将为与会者奉献一场全球华人慈善领域的思想盛宴。清华大学华商研究中心与美国洛杉矶加州大学(UCLA)亚太中心将以本届论坛作为开启“全球华人慈善学术联盟”的开端,通过中美双方在全球华人慈善事业领域的进一步合作,并逐步延伸至欧洲和东南亚的“一带一路”沿线国家以及全球各国。

Donor builds trans-Pacific community of Chinese donors

Abstract:UCLA alumnus John Long is a successful businessman, Asian American community leader and philanthropist. One of his latest projects, the Global Chinese Philanthropy Initiative, works closely with the UCLA Asia Pacific Center. The two organizations are co-organizing a forum at Tsinghua University in late June.

“全球华人慈善行动—清华论坛”将于2018年6月28日在北京隆重召开

International Institute, June 19, 2018 — Until recently, no comprehensive comparative analysis had been conducted of contemporary Chinese American and Chinese philanthropy. That changed in fall 2017, when the Global Chinese Philanthropy Initiative(GCPI)published “Chinese and Chinese American Philanthropy,” an analytical report on the activities of Chinese philanthropists in the United States and China, respectively.

Among its major findings, the report documented dramatic growth in charitable giving by Chinese on both sides of the Pacific. “The project found that the amount of philanthropy by Chinese is not only
significant in scale relative to other ethnic groups, but also rapidly accelerating in both the U.S. and Greater China,” says businessman and philanthropist John S. Long, who founded GCPI and serves on its executive committee.

“The GCPI research also highlighted common areas of interest and support by both Chinese and Chinese Americans, led by education, health and the environment,” elaborates Long. “Finally, common ‘soft’ qualities — as revealed by the individual narratives in the report — centered on family, community and faith.”

The GCPI report was launched in fall 2017 at two major, high-profile launch events in Los Angeles and Hong Kong, respectively. Its findings have already generated significant conversations and exchanges among Chinese American and Chinese philanthropists. Based on the success of those events, GCPI is spearheading an upcoming “Tsinghua Forum” in Beijing. The one-day forum, to be cohosted by the UCLA Asia Pacific Center and the Tsinghua Center for Chinese Entrepreneur Studies, will be held at Tsinghua University on June 28.

Creating an ecosphere for global Chinese philanthropy
An actively engaged donor to both UCLA and UC Irvine, Long created the Global Chinese Philanthropy Initiative in 2015, together with several partners and benefactors. Its goal was to foster a community of Chinese and Chinese American philanthropists who could share lessons learned, maximize the impact of their giving and encourage the next generation of young philanthropists.

A highly successful real estate developer and investor, Long completed his B.A. in economics at UCLA in 1969 and went on to earn an M.B.A. at the Harvard School of Business. In 1978, he founded Highridge Partners, a private real estate investment firm that invests in all types of real estate and at all steps of the market development process. The privately held company has generated a portfolio in excess of $10 billion and is known for consistently generating high returns as a result of its disciplined investment approach.

Reflecting on the “Chinese and Chinese American Philanthropy” report, Long says, “There were several reasons why we felt a bilateral approach to examining, understanding and measuring the impact of Chinese philanthropy was needed.

“First,” he explains, “there was nowhere we could find data which presented in a comprehensive way the amount of Chinese giving in the U.S. and in Greater China, and the trend of such giving over the last 10 years.

“More than that,” he adds, “the thoughts and motivation of Chinese and Chinese American philanthropists were not examined in a systematic way. Finally, scant research could be found on how cultural differences between Chinese philanthropists from Greater China and the U.S. might translate to a different approach towards philanthropy between these two groups.”

After commissioning the research for 2017 report — overseen by the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and the nonprofit organization Asian Americans for Advancing Justice — GCPI turned to the UCLA Asia Pacific Center for help in developing a website and building an academic network that could support its future work. The website, which hosts the report online, is expected to increasingly function as an information clearinghouse for an expanding community of global Chinese philanthropists.

“The three members of the executive committee of GCPI – Archie Kleingartner, Stewart Kwoh, and I – all have had deep connections with UCLA,” notes Long. Kleingartner is the founding dean and professor emeritus of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. Kwoh is president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice. A double alumnus of UCLA(B.A. and J.D.), Kwoh also teaches in both the UCLA Asian American Studies Department and the School of Law.

“The Asia Pacific Center at UCLA, led by Professor Min Zhou, has tremendous China and Chinese diaspora resources, so it was natural that there would be a good fit for us to work together to expand the study and outreach of this important field of global Chinese philanthropy,” he says.

Tsinghua Forum moves GCPI into a second phase
In its second phase, GCPI is moving to add crucial new elements to the ecosystem it has created, including rigorous academic research and more efficient communication among its participants.

The upcoming Tsinghua Forum will feature not only distinguished business leaders, philanthropists and second-generation philanthropists from both sides of the Pacific, but for the first time, a deans’ panel on research and philanthropy in higher education and two academic panels on Chinese and diasporic Chinese philanthropy. Both UCLA Chancellor Gene Block and UCLA Vice Provost for International Studies and Global Engagement Cindy Fan will participate in the Forum, together with senior officials of UCLA, UC Irvine and Tsinghua University.

“Phase I in many ways was an exploratory research project that integrated data, narrative and analysis across Chinese philanthropists in Greater China and the U.S.,” comments Long. “This had never been done through a bilateral and interdisciplinary approach, and the results of this exploratory research led to three broad areas where this philanthropic ecosystem can take root.

“First,” he says, “the today’s generation of self-made Chinese philanthropists approach their giving in pragmatic and programmatic ways; so one goal of the next phase is to expand and create more efficient ways by which donors and recipients can more effectively connect with each other. Technology can be a powerful tool in making this happen,” he observes.

“Second, it became evident fairly early on that there is a growing next generation of philanthropists who approach their giving in a more holistic manner, integrating and collaborating in entrepreneurial ways to leverage the impact of their own giving,” he notes. “I’m excited to hear the next-generation panel at the Tsinghua Forum discuss this and how they plan to expand this aspect of the ecosystem,” he adds.

“Finally,” says Long, “the role of bilateral academic research to study and elevate the trends and motivations behind Chinese philanthropy is ripe for further advancement.”

Long hopes that the Tsinghua Forum will serve to expand the philanthropic ecosystem in both scope and scale. “I think the greatest take away from Phase I is that this is just the tip of the iceberg,” he says.

“There is a great deal of interest from different stakeholders in continuing to develop the many aspects and contributions of Chinese as philanthropists,” he elaborates. “In particular, it’s gratifying to see academics and industry working hand in hand in growing and shaping future research and dialogue.

A deep commitment to philanthropy
GCPI is one of many innovative projects supported by Long in his almost three decades of philanthropic work. “So many people have helped me get to where I am today, and still continue to support and encourage me,” he says, “so when we had the resources to begin giving back, it was natural to think of ways to help others.”

In 1992, Long and his wife Marilyn established the Long Family Foundation, where she serves as president and executive director. The Foundation focuses its work on religious, educational, cultural and research endeavors in the United States and China. Among the many activities it supports are Asian American and U.S.-China initiatives, scholarships, arts programs, public sculpture projects and Christian ministries.

“From the beginning,” explains Long, “ we approached our philanthropy through a values based model, supporting both ideas and programs consistent with our desire to work alongside those we support, often providing seed and start-up funding for those programs that otherwise would not get off the ground.”

Perhaps one of the most impressive aspects of the foundation is that it involves the Long children in the transmission of the family’s deeply held values. “Getting to work inter-generationally with our family through the Long Family Foundation has been something that Marilyn and I have found rewarding,” shares Long.  “We are proud of the passion and direction that our daughters contribute to our philanthropy.”

In addition to his own foundation, Long has created two research centers that seek to promote innovation by combining academic research with professional know-how:the Ziman Center for Real
Estate at the UCLA Anderson School of Management(established in 2000)and the Long U.S.-China Institute for Business, Law and Society at UC Irvine(2010).

The UCLA Ziman Center, where Long continues to serve as founding chairman, seeks to harness the power of academic research and industry initiatives to help redefine the role of real estate in the 21st century. The Long Institute at UCI builds on this idea by promoting informed Sino-American relations through research and using existing partnerships among UC campuses and Chinese universities to foster mutual understanding of social, business and legal challenges and opportunities in the two countries.

GCPI, Long’s newest philanthropic venture, is now poised to expand its network and impact. In the coming months, the initiative will be working with the UCLA Asia Pacific Center and the Tsinghua Center for Chinese Entrepreneur Studies to strengthen their partnership and expand into a global philanthropy research collaborative.
