Did you know that China has over 200,000 charitable organizations? Yep, kinda floored me, too. The sheer number of the organizations is probably one reason why some people in China, among them members of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and TV host Yang Lan, are calling for laws governing charities and their activities.

Yang Lan, a well-known TV hostess and member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), said it was necessary to establish a law that would make the donation procedure simple and transparent, legalize qualified organizations and make access to charities easy.

Yang, who last year ranked second on Hurun’s China Philanthropy list, is not alone in proposing the introduction of a charity law.

Chen Tiedi, president of the Shanghai Charity Foundation (SCF), said: “We need such a law, and we need it badly.”

They’re also proposing for more incentives for companies who make charitable donations and to make sure that charities aren’t simply ways to make money or evade taxes. Should be a good idea, although I’m wondering how they propose to determine which organizations are qualified and what will happen to those that aren’t.
