Who We Are

The China Philanthropy Leadership Initiative is an organization composed of IUPUI students from a diversity of academic disciplines that share a common interest in philanthropy, nonprofit organizations, social innovation and development, and community engagement.

 

Mission

Our mission is to improve cross-cultural communication in global philanthropy and expand cooperation between those interested in furthering philanthropy in both China and America through:

  • Reaching out to and developing relationships with non-profit organizations across the greater Indianapolis area
  • Developing a platform to engage young philanthropy practitioners and scholars
  •  Providing resources and perspectives for professionals and scholars
  • Inspiring leadership through discussion of a diversity of practical experiences from both American and Chinese perspectives.

 
What We Have Achieved

  • In March 2012, Panel Discussion: Nonprofit Accountability

  • In October 2012, Indy Talk: Becoming an International Humanitarian Incubator

  • In March 2013, we worked with Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and organized a panel discussion, Philanthropy Education: Global Perspectives and Chinese Experiences. We discussed nonprofit management and philanthropic studies education programs around the world. A delegation from Beijing Normal University Zhuhai Campus and China Foundation Center joined the panel.
  •  In July 2013, we worked with Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and welcomed a delegation from Tsinghua University NGO Research Center (China).
  •  In September 2013, with the help of Dr. Marty Sulek,  adjunct faculty at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, we visited Winchester and the Community Foundation of Randolph County.
  •  In October 2013, with the support of Ms. Deanna Crispen, the president of the Cass County Community Foundation, we visited the Cass County Community Foundation in Logansport and met their board members, Mayor Ted Franklin, and Milton Cole, the CEO of Cole Hardwoods.
  • In November 2013, we visited the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, volunteered for their Burmese Tutoring Program, and had a discussion about the tenets, mission, and programs of the foundation.      
  •  In January 2014, we collaborated with Philanthropic Studies Society, Public Affairs Student Association(PASA), and SPEA Alumni Association for the panel discussion, Nonprofit & Government, which attracted more than 70 people
  • In February 2014, we collaborated with the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) at Indiana University, PASA, and Public IN Review to organize 2014 SPEA Chinese New Year Celebration.
  • Additionally, we have provided over 10 seminars around the topics of China, philanthropy and civil society and invited guest speakers from the International Center, Tabernacle Presbyterian Church, RESULTS Global Grassroots Associate, and Sister Cities of Louisville.
  • Recently, we worked with the Chinese Nonprofit Study Association and launched a translation project. This project is funded by Philanthropy Weekly in China. We will introduce thought-provoking articles produced by the Chronicle of Philanthropy and other American mainstream newspapers/magazines for the Chinese speaking audience. The purpose of this project is to help Chinese practitioners understand American philanthropy and become inspired by great ideas and practices in other countries.
