Beijing was listed No 1 in a ranking of the most philanthropic Chinese mainland cities unveiled on Monday.

The capital city ranked first among 321 cities on the Chinese mainland with a score of 94 out of a possible 100 points, according to a report based on the China City Philanthropy Indexes 2012.

Shanghai ranked second, while Shenzhen tied with Wuxi in East China's Jiangsu province for third place.

The indexes, designed by the China Charity and Donation Information Center, which is affiliated with the Ministry of Civil Affairs, measured cities' philanthropic performances in six areas. They are charitable donations, accounting for 20 points; charitable organizations, 20 points; charitable projects, 16 points; voluntary service, 20 points; government support, 12 points; and the culture of philanthropy, 12 points.

The Beijing government was the most supportive of philanthropy among all surveyed cities, as it scored 11.5 points while the average for other cities polled was 5.76 points. Government support for philanthropy was measured in several ways, including financial support, the implementation of preferential tax policies for donors and management of charitable activities.

Liu Youping, deputy director of the center, said the Beijing government has been actively supporting grassroots organizations, which contributed to its high score in the ranking.
