On January 1, 2017, the “Law of the People’s Republic of China on Administration of Activities of Overseas Nongovernmental Organizations in the Mainland of China” (colloquially known as “China’s Overseas NGO Management Law”) went into effect. The law requires that foreign NGOs coordinate their efforts with the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) and provides the framework within which they can continue their activities in the country: (1) opening an office in China, or (2) applying for a temporary activity license.
Earlier this year there was a general initial wave of confusion due to the lack of clarity and guidance on the implementation of the law, as the year progressed the Chinese government provided additional guidance. It is because of the complexity of this matter, and persistent concerns regarding regulatory compliance that we are producing this education program. CAF America helps grantmakers and philanthropists translate into practice the proper way to reach regulatory compliance when granting to charitable organizations and projects in China.
Join us on the CAF America Radio Network as our President and CEO, Ted Hart, discusses this law and regulatory compliance for granting charitable funds into China with Jessie Krafft, Vice President of Donor Advised and Grant Services at CAF America.
