Donate for this cause
As a faith-based social organization, Amity Foundation encourages Christians to participate in social work under the Christian belief of “love”, to support the development of church-run social service, and to promote capabilities for social service by churches. On the other hand, Amity is committed to building a platform for charitable cooperation among religions, exploring ways to develop faith-based charity work, and making capacity building for religion-based philanthropy, with an aim to promote the healthy development of this field.
Amity’s call to fight against COVID-19 received active response from the religious circles. Over 300 church, fellowships and faith-based organizations across 16 provinces supported Amity in all kinds of ways, including need assessments, procurement, and relief work, with a donation of over RMB 15 million in total and supplies valued nearly RMB 600,000.
Amity Rose Charity Fund, Amity Spring Rain Charity Fund, Church Philanthropy Fund and other special funds are developing steadily. Amity encourages more social forces to participate in the promotion of diaconia work, community services, special population services, critical illness relief and other areas.
In terms of religion-based philanthropy research, Amity completed the “2019 China Religion-based Philanthropy Development Report” and, by sorting out the history of Christian philanthropy, compiled the “Development Process of Chinese Christian Philanthropy from the Perspective of the Sinicization of Christianity” and provided training to local church preachers.
