“You-Talent” Project

· English

Given the dearth of talent and resources in the philanthropic sector, coupled with a lack of fundraising and development coursework at Chinese universities, the Ginkgo “You-Talent” Project helps social organizations recruit and cultivate talented professionals interested in social sector careers, particularly with regards to communication and fundraising.
 

The project offers RMB 100,000 per year for 3 consecutive years to selected Ginkgo Fellow organizations to hire full time staff for fundraising, communications, research, or other key positions.
 
The Ginkgo “You-Talent” Program is funded by the Dunhe Foundation, which has also generously funded four other talent projects, operated by the One Foundation, SEE Foundation, Beijing Western Sunshine Rural Development Foundation, and Chengdu Charity Federation.

Additional support for the “You-Talent” community

Consultation: Ginkgo hired two consulting firms to assess four grantee organizations, determine their weaknesses, and recommend best practices. Moreover, the firms helped these organizations and their leaders incorporate effective fundraising tactics in their overall approach.
 
Online Sharing Sessions: Ginkgo organized online sharing sessions for grantee organizations to share successful approaches for public crowdfunding.
 
“You-Talent” Offline Seminar: On May 22, 2015, the “You-Talent” program hosted a conference in Shanghai, where 40 “You-Talent” professionals shared their experiences in capacity-building, recruiting talent, and determining the mission together as a team.
 
Peer Advisory Group: The “You-Talent” project created the peer advisory group to help members tackle difficult, but commonly faced problems. Made up of NGO leaders in similar stages of development, the peer advisory group provides a space for leaders to seek input and learn from the experience of others.
