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!
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. Hosts invite 9 of their friends to purchase tickets at their table, with tickets ranging from 500 RMB to 1,500 RMB per person, depending on the restaurant. 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 4,200,000 RMB to local beneficiaries with 100% of table proceeds going directly to our designated charities.
Migrant workers contribute to everyone’s daily life on Beijing. However, children from low-income migrant families are not eligible for middle school education in the city. So Dandelion School began in 2005 to serve as a local non-profit organization and provide access to quality education to migrant children. However, after 10 years, the worn out classrooms and dormitories are dangerous for accommodating close to 700 students and staff. The new campus project will help Dandelion School to build a safe and durable campus and ensure the school’s development in the long run. Although Dandelion students are from low-income migrant families, we believe they deserve quality education and durable classrooms, just like every other student in Beijing. Chi Fan for Charity’s support is essential to build a classroom of fine arts wherein 810 migrant children will learn to appreciate and create art. You can learn more about Dandelion School HERE
Starfish Project is a non-profit organization with a social enterprise that restores hope to trafficked and exploited women. Starfish Project provides these women and their children with shelter, counseling, access to healthcare, educational opportunities, child education grants and vocational training. Additionally, we provide full-time employment in our social enterprise jewelry company, where women can use the skills they have learned to provide for themselves and their families. Through our Holistic Care programs and our vocational opportunities we have seen women with little to no education gain the skills to become graphic designers, accountants, photographers and managers.
