Shanghai Rende Foundation is initiated by Amity. It aims at supporting non-governmental public services, promoting philanthropic innovation and accelerating philanthropic industry development. It is the second grant-making foundation initiated by a non-governmental organization in Shanghai.
By mobilizing resources from the government, foundation industries, and enterprises, Rende Foundation successfully establishes the first domestic Foundation Service Park (The Park) located at Shanghai Pudong New Area for promoting the healthy development of foundations. The establishment of the Park is especially made possible with the support from Pudong Civil Affairs Bureau and the Xin Hu Group.
The Park is a training base offering integrated services to the foundations in Shanghai including administrative support, counseling, capacity building and information sharing. With the cooperation between government, enterprises and social organizations, the Park aims at building a platform for gathering resources, mobilizing foundations, promoting cooperation between different sectors, and creating a philanthropic industrial chain of public services.The Park was established and brought into operation in the end of 2011. It occupies about 1000 square meter including its office room, multi-functional conference hall, library and information center and other public service areas. With the stewardship of the Park, Rende Foundation decides to upgrade all the current facilities and equipments in the Park including the books in the library.
