Fuping Development Institute

Introduction to the Partner

Fuping Development Institute (FDI) is a registered non-profit organisation that was established in 2002 for the purposes of alleviating poverty and promoting sustainable development. It consists of a team of celebrated academics, entrepreneurs, and development practitioners.

FDI’s roots stretch back to 1993, when co-founders Mao Yushi and Dr. Tang Min set up the Lvliang Area Microcredit Project in Shanxi province. This was followed in 1994 by the Institute of Environment and Development (IED) and the Leadership for the Environment and Sustainable Development (LEAD), both founded by Dr. Li Lailai. LEAD has since established itself in the field of sustainable development by training a number of its most significant proponents.
In 2002 FDI initiated the Migrant Worker Training Project, pioneering a state-private collaborative method for the attainment of social good.

In 2006 FDI joined forces with IED to expand its scope and impact.

Venture Philanthropy Partnership

About Us

CSR network was founded by the Beijing Fuping Development Institute in December 2005. This program aims to promote corporate philanthropy through formulating philanthropic strategy, promoting employee participation, encouraging donations, building a platform for exchange among corporations and between corporations and the public, implementing innovative corporate philanthropy practices, raising the effectiveness of philanthropic efforts, and achieving corporate philanthropy professionalization.

Volunteer Centre

The volunteer center serves corporate employee volunteers, and provides corporations and employees with a range of volunteer project assistance, such as research, training, supervision, documentation, and assessment. These services assist corporations to increase the effectiveness of employee volunteer programs. In addition, by spreading information about successful cases, we seek to improve the overall effectiveness of corporate philanthropy investments.

Philanthropy Warehouse

This project collects corporate material resources, such as products made by corporations, second hand office equipment, or office space, and in turn donates them to NGOs or disadvantaged groups that are in need of these resources. In this way, the project improves the work environment of NGOs and the lives of people in need, raises work efficiency, and allows social resources to be used as effectively as possible.

Communication Platform

This is a network for exchanging information about corporate philanthropy where experts are able to share their experiences and discuss the achievenments of their projects.

  1. Corporate Philanthropy Forum: a quarterly gathering of corporations to share information about philanthropic investments and administrative experiences and to discuss the path towards effective and innovative corporate philanthropy.
  2. Corporate Philanthropy Quarterly: a national publication dedicated to corporate philantrhopy that looks at leading theories and new trends related to international and domestic corporate philanthropy activities.
  3. Corporate Philanthropy Website: the website releases information about new activities, outstanding cases, and hot issues related to corporate philanthropy, further promoting exchange and discussion among interested parties
