Give2Asia has announced a new partnership with China Social Entrepreneur Foundation, also known as YouChange, to set up the YouChange-Give2Asia Special Fund in China.

The Special Fund will provide Give2Asia with a platform for raising funds and managing local giving programs for international corporate donors in China who wish to engage their local offices and employees in China in tax-deductible giving that supports Chinese organizations and philanthropic programs.

This new partnership will allow Give2Asia to further support social innovations and solutions that address local community needs.

Ta-lin Hsu, chairman of the Board of Give2Asia, said: "Setting up the YouChange-Give2Asia Special Fund in China is an important step for Give2Asia and for the services we provide in the region. It enables us to directly work with clients in China to support philanthropic programs and organizations. Give2Asia is also able to provide advisory services and first-class stewardship for clients in China to help them deliver effective and excellent philanthropic programs."

Wang Ping, chairperson of the YouChange Foundation Board, said: "Working with Give2Asia, brings to YouChange a new platform for international cooperation that improves and promotes charitable giving in Asia and in the United States. This partnership is the product of Give2Asia and YouChange’s shared philanthropic vision in promoting social justice and harmonious development internationally."
