On January 1, 2017, China’s Overseas NGO Law (ONGO Law) officially came into effect. After that, international nonprofit organizations, foundations, corporations, and other grant-makers scrambled to understand how to operate in the new environment. Some registered offices in China, others found partners through which they could apply for “temporary activity filings,” and other groups decided to wait it out, to see how the new system would develop before committing to a specific strategy.
In this webinar, Mark Sidel, Doyle-Bascom Professor of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and consultant at the International Center for Not-for-Profit-Law, discusses how organizations have operated under the first two years of the new law and looks ahead at what may be in store. Also, Adam King, program manager at Give2Asia, talks about the organization’s experience implementing more than 80 grants in 2018 through its registered office in Beijing.
