The 13th China Charity Ranking List was announced at a ceremony in Beijing on April 28. At the event, China Women's Development Foundation (CWDF) came second on the list for having collected a total of 534.9 million yuan (U.S. $ 82.26 million) in public donations in 2015.
Organizers compiled the list by ranking enterprises and individuals who contributed over one million yuan (U.S. $ 154,000) last year. Having donated 292 million yuan (U.S.$ 45 million), Chen Yidan, the boss of telecoms firm Tencent and the main founder of the Tencent Foundation, led the list for philanthropists.
As well as announcing the ranking list of foundations and philanthropists, organizers, the China Philanthropy News Agency, also published the accompanying 2015 Blue Book on Charity Donation Development in China.
The news agency has published the list since 2004. It aims to congratulate role models and promote charitable spirits. It has been acclaimed as a way of highlighting the most compassionate people among affluent Chinese.
The agency cited data through six channels: data on donations received through civil administration systems; data on individual donors; data on donations received by charity organizations; data on listed companies; data on donations reported by the media; and, data from the charity record file of Charity Philanthropy Times.
The results were compiled by comparing data from multiple channels, and professional investigation and confirmations were carried before they published the list, organizers said.
