Transparency of charities fails public's needs

BEIJING - The transparency of charity organizations still leaves a lot to be desired, according to the results of a survey, conducted by a research institute affiliated to the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

The China Charity and Donation Information Center on Thursday released its reports conducted on the transparency of charity organizations since 2009.

The center also used four criteria, information completeness, accuracy, promptness and accessibility, to score charity organizations on their information disclosure.

The maximum score was 100. However, the 1,000 organizations surveyed scored 33 on average; only 8.2 percent scored more than 60.

"We have seen some progress in charity organizations' information disclosure, however, the progress has still not caught up with the public's expectations," said Liu Youping, deputy director of the center.

Due to a series of charity scandals in 2011, the public has displayed a greater interest in supervising charity groups' financial information, Liu added.

About 64 percent of 1,053 netizens polled said they keep a close eye on the information charity organizations make public, a 10 percent rise on the figure last year, while less than 14 percent said they did not care.
