Philanthropy in Motion (PIM) is Asia’s first and only young people’s foundation that offers participants a chance to donate real funds to real organizations, learning about effective giving and impact along the way. Our program includes:

  • Due diligence training to learn how to effectively evaluate social enterprises in China
  • An annual conference that congregates industry leaders from tech, business, philanthropy, and the public sector to discuss smart philanthropy

Our highlight this summer is Model Foundation 2016, a 2-month program held in partnership with Yale Center Beijing. We brought together young people from all over the world to conduct due diligence on 9 Chinese social organizations and decide how best to distribute a PIM fund of $20,000.
