Good eats. Good times. Good causes.

Chi Fan for Charity (CFFC) is Beijing’s premiere charity dining event. Chi Fan for Charity’s innovative model takes the standard concept of a large gala charity dinner and throws it out the window!

What is Chi Fan for Charity?

Chi Fan for Charity: Founded in 2009 with a mission of giving back to the Beijing community, Chi Fan for Charity (CFFC) is a modern take on the standard concept of a large, gala charity dinner.  CFFC invites some of Beijing’s best-known personalities to host a table at Beijing’s top restaurants.  Tickets are available to the public with seats ranging from 500 RMB to 1,500 RMB per person.  Following dinner, all dinner guests and supporters are invited to an incredible after-party where people mix and mingle and talk about the amazing dinners they just experienced.  To date, Chi Fan for Charity has donated more than 3,700,000 RMB to local beneficiaries with 100% of table proceeds going directly to our designated charities.
“吃饭为慈善“(CFFC)本着回馈社会的使命,于2009年成立于北京,以一个大型慈善晚宴形式将现代前沿元素融入其中。CFFC邀请诸多知名人士在京城最顶级餐厅担任餐桌主持。提供的座位从每位500元至1500元不等。晚餐过后,所有宾客将被邀请参加after party,在那里可以结交新朋友,尽享美好夜晚。迄今为止,“吃饭为慈善“(CFFC)已经筹集超过370万人民币的善款,百分百保证选中的慈善机构受到资助。

The 2015 Charity Beneficiaries

This year’s 2015 Beijing Chi Fan for Charity beneficiaries were Educating Girls of Rural China (EGRC) and Bethel China. Learn a little more about what these two incredible foundations plan to do with the funds..

Educating Girls of Rural China: Since its establishment in 2005, Educating Girls of Rural China (EGRC) has sponsored over 500 young women from poor rural regions of Western China to achieve high school and university education with 100% graduation rate. EGRC’s motto is Educated Women Raise Educated Children. We believe educating women is the fundamental way to make a better family and society. EGRC is seeking funding to fund 20 girls’ high school education in 2016. Each girl needs 5,000RMB per year to pay their tuition, accommodation, books and basic meals. All of the selected girls are from extremely difficult financial backgrounds and without financial support, they are not able to attend high school, or at risk of dropping out.

自从“加拿大大资助中国乡村女学生教育协会”(EGRC) 在2005年被建立后,EGRC已赞助了500多个乡村女孩,帮助她们上高中、上大学并且拥有100% 毕业率。EGRC 的铭言为:一个女人受了教育,她的后代也会受教育。我们相信有教育的女人就是创造一个更好的家庭甚至社会的根本。EGRC 想在2016年建立20个能够给女孩带来教育的高中学校,并且在寻找资金。每个女孩每年需要付5000人民币包括学费、住宿费、买书费以及吃饭费。EGRC的每个女孩都来自财政困难的地方,如没有财政支持,她们就会被辍学甚至无法上高中。
Bethel China: From everyone here at Bethel, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this year’s Chi Fan for Charity another resounding success. In total, over RMB 500,000 was raised for Bethel and our fellow recipient, Educating Girls of Rural China (EGRC).Part of the funds will go towards supporting Bethel’s family program at the main campus in Doudian, Fangshan District. Fostering and caring for children who do not have families is an important part of what we do, but we also focus on early intervention efforts for families with visually-impaired and blind kids. Through the family program, we educate and support parents through free assessments, individualized education programs (IEP) for each child, and progress tracking at school and at home. The remainder of the funds will help us set up more early intervention centers across China with 2 more centers opening in 2016.We welcome anyone – individuals, schools, companies, and more – who is interested in finding out more about Bethel or helping out with our projects. For more information, visit our website at , visit our Facebook pageat or contact Anna at
