l  There are 31 philanthropists who have donated over CNY 100 million, 4 more than last year, the largest number of ‘supersize’ philanthropists in the history of this list.

l  Education was the main cause. Donations to foundation and other social welfare accounted for 20%; poverty reduction up 6% to 3rd place with 17%; culture was the same as last year, with 6% in 4th place. Rupert Hoogewerf said, “Education and disaster relief make up half the donations on average. This past year we had no major disasters, so education dominated.”

l  Within Education, the Alma Mater was the preferred cause, led by the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Beihang University and Wuhan University, the other donation of more than 100 million is Tsinghua University, Sichuan University, Nankai University, Northwestern Polytechnical University and Zhengzhou University are the most amount.

l  6 out of 10 (59 persons) on the list are also topped on the Hurun Rich List 2016, which is up 3 persons from last year. Rupert Hoogewerf said, “The wealth and charity of these people are relatively transparent.”

l  The average donation of philanthropists is only 0.5% of their average wealth, only one-third of last year. Rupert Hoogewerf said, “Chinese most generous philanthropists donate about 1% of the total personal wealth, while ordinary high-net worth donors should be 1% of the investable assets."

l  30% have high political appointments (either NPC or CPPCC at the national level), p by half from last year, while still higher than 9.4% of the Hurun Rich List.

Methodology

 

To put together a comprehensive list of the largest philanthropists of China is an almost impossible task. However, we believe that the Hurun Philanthropy List, published since 2004, is the most serious and authoritative effort to date, identifying the individuals and highlighting the causes they donate to.

 

To make this list, the Hurun Research Institute surveyed 3000 of China’s most successful entrepreneurs, including the 2056 from the recently released Hurun China Rich List 2016 and the 609 Chinese from the Hurun Global Rich List 2017, meticulously cross referencing the results with media reports and charitable foundations. In the course of the research, Hurun Research Institute attended non-profit-related seminars, as well as meeting with scholars, experts, philanthropists and senior members of charitable foundations.

Hurun Research includes cash and cash equivalents pledged with legally binding commitments for the twelve month period from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017. When comparing previous lists, please note that for corporate donations Hurun Research for the second year running multiplied the donation by an individual’s shareholding in the company.

 

The list includes only individuals born and bred in mainland China regardless of the passport they currently hold. Values are rounded, and past figures are subject to exchange rate fluctuations. 1 USD = 7 RMB.

 

Thank you for all the organizations and individuals who have supported and helped us in compiling the list.
