China Foundation Forum (CFF) is a platform established voluntarily by foundations aiming at pursuing excellence and achieving progress in the foundation sector. In 2008 under the guidance of the State Administration of Civil Society of the Ministry of Civil Affairs, eight institutions initiated China Private Foundation Forum. In 2016 its name formally changed to China Foundation Forum. In 2017 the secretariat of China Foundation Forum registered at Beijing Civil Affairs Bureau as Beijing Jiye Evergreen Social Organization Service Center.
CFF adheres to principles of openness, sharing and striving for excellence. It aims to strengthen the communication and cooperation among Chinese foundations and build an ecosystem of China's foundation sector, so that the sector can become an important force to effectively solve social problems and promote the functioning of society. After more than ten years of development, CFF has become one of the most dynamic, influential and well-known brands in the public welfare sector.
