Approximately 75 percent of charity organizations in China never or hardly disclose internal information to the public, which reveals incompetence in the monitoring system , said a survey by China Charity &Donation Information Center (CCDIC) released on Thursday.

Though mass donations are given, especially to the recent disasters like Yushu and Wenchuan earthquakes and snow storms that have actuated philanthropy awareness in the country where donations surged to over 54 billion yuan ($8.11 billion), specific how-it-was-spent information reports seem to go rather unclear.

CCDIC's survey, the Philanthropy Transparency of China in 2010, showed that 42 percent of charity organizations have no information-disclosure systems; 37 percent don't dispose of staffs to oversee them. And information on financial audit results and personnel appointments are the contents least mentioned by them on their addressings to the public.

The 21st Century Business Herald reported also that China has no non-governmental institutions to supervise third-party charity organizations, leaving many of the small and medium-sized off the leash.
