会长直播

感谢桂红宁领导财务部辛勤、高效工作,我们已经完成了2016年的报税工作,税表已经公布在网站。理事会近期将讨论2016年财务报告和2017年预算,通过后2016年财务报告也会在网站公布。

2016年OCEF的募捐金额达到了77万美元,是有史以来的最高记录,感谢所有关心和支持OCEF的义工和捐款人,尤其是张霖峰领导的募捐部的出色工作。

由于需要开始2017春季的审批,我们最近关闭了2016秋季的1对1资助选择。所有的2016秋季1对1小学生都已经被选择,目前仍然有初中生和高中生可供选择,但是需要和1对1小组联系,由他们来协助。这里也特别感谢卓韵宝和众多参与2017春季资助数据输入的义工们,在他们的努力下,数据都已经完成输入,目前已经进入审批阶段。

考虑到最近汇率的变化以及国内通货膨胀的影响,执行委员会最近投票决定对助学金部的资助金额(人民币)标准做如下调整:

  • 小学生由每学期300元、每年600元调整为每学期350元、每年700元。
  • 初中生由每学期450元、每年900元调整为每学期500元、每年1000元。
  • 高中生由每学期1000元、每年2000元调整为每学期1200元、每年2400元。
  • 特殊资助以现有标准为基准,小学生、初中生加倍,高中生加半,调整为小学生每学期700元、每年1400元,初中生每学期1000元、每年2000元,高中生每学期1800元、每年3600元。

1对1的美元捐助金额不变,仍然是小学生每年100元,初中生每年150元,高中生每年350元。新的资助金额标准从2017春季开始实行。

谢谢大家!

Message from the President

Thanks to the diligent and efficient work by our Finance Department under Gui Hongning’s leadership, we have completed our tax return for 2016, and the forms are published on the OCEF website. The board will soon be reviewing the 2016 financial report and 2017 budget. Once approved the 2016 financial report will also be published on our website.

OCEF raised over $770K in 2016, a new record in our history. We are very grateful to all the volunteers and donors who cared for and supported OCEF, especially to our Fundraising Department and its director, Zhang Linfeng, for their outstanding work.

Recently we have closed the 1-to-1 Sponsorship Program for Fall 2016 as we need to start the review process for Spring 2017. All elementary school students in the 1-to-1 Program for Fall 2016 have been paired, but there are still middle school and high school students available for pairing; donors are urged to contact our 1-to-1 Program team for assistance. Special thanks to Zhuo Yunbao and the many volunteers who participated in data entry for Spring 2017. With their tireless effort, all data have been entered into the system and are now under review.

In light of recent changes in the currency exchange rate and the current state of inflation in China, the Executive Committee has voted to adjust the standards for financial aid packages (in RMB) as follows:

  • Aid package for elementary school students will increase from ¥300 per semester (¥600 per year) to ¥350 per semester (¥700 per year);
  • Aid package for middle school students will increase from ¥450 per semester (¥900 per year) to ¥500 per semester (¥1,000 per year);
  • Aid package for senior high school students will increase from ¥1,000 per semester (¥2,000 per year) to ¥1,200 per semester (¥2,400 per year);
  • Special assistance package will increase by 100% for elementary and middle school students and by 50% for senior high school students, reaching ¥700 per semester (¥1,400 per year) for elementary school students, ¥1,000 per semester (¥2,000 per year) for middle school students, and ¥1,800 per semester (¥3,600 per year) for senior high school students.

The amount for 1-to-1 sponsorship will remain unchanged at US$100 per year for elementary school students, $150 per year for middle school students and $350 per year for senior high school students. The new standards will be effective as of Spring 2017.

Thank you!

2016年助学金主要工作

2016年,助学金项目部工作在总结历年得失基础上,在基金会对助学发展方向规划逐步增进整体共识的情况下,呈现了“两个加强”的好趋势。一是加强与基金会其他项目之间的联动。通过监察走访、暑期支教夏令营、阅读夏令营、特殊项目实施、回信互动等,尤其是通过暑期支教夏令营,加深对一个地区的全面了解,促进基金会在一个地区不同项目之间信息联动和实施统筹。二是加强规模资助点协调员网络建设。甘肃地区、内蒙古地区分别在原协调员统筹下增加具体点位协调员,初步构建起了规模资助点地区的协调员网络层级,以分散协调员负荷、保障工作质量。

2016年,根据助学金受助学生的实际需要,为进一步加强阅读推广工作、促进受助学生全面发展,助学金项目部增设图书资助组,并由北京义工张华任图书资助组组长,由网络义工、北京义工为主组织实施。2016年春季学期开始,图书资助组开始进行采购、反馈跟进等工作,同时征询学生阅读意向、阅读兴趣,并据此在秋季学期进行图书精准资助。这项工作事多量大比较繁琐,图书资助组以细致高效的行动、团结紧密的协作,给受助学生送去了很多好书,受到师生和协调员一致好评。据初步统计,2016年全年共发书2948册。

2016年春秋两季助学金反馈和新申请的更新、录入、上传和审核工作,分别由17名和10名上海义工线下进行了录入工作,由28和19名义工进行了线上的录入、上传和审核工作。

2016年,因国家对新疆地区助学政策的覆盖力度和覆盖范围,基金会新疆疏附县资助点学生全部毕业,该点自然收缩。至此,基金会新疆两个资助点全部完成历史使命。

2016年助学金专项捐款情况

  • 沈从龙残疾人基金由沈昆先生于2013年捐资三万美元成立,旨在捐助残疾学生和家长有残疾的学生,2016年春秋两季共资助学生16人次,金额合计12600元。
  • 北加州张新民先生慈善助学金向基金会捐款10万美元,全部用于助学金项目,208名高中学生接受了该项资助,这些受惠学生来自山西、甘肃、河南、黑龙江、内蒙古和四川。

2017年助学金工作主要考虑

  • 依托综合资助点,尝试拓展协调员队伍网络布局,加强协调员队伍沟通,提升助学金工作的制度化、规范化程度。
  • 配合募捐部,做好专项基金、专项资助的使用落实和信息反馈。
  • 密切关注国家助学政策动态,适时因地制宜调整资助点布局,优化资助学生结构。
  • 协助基金会其他部门做好境外NGO管理办法实施的应对措施,努力确保助学金项目在国内平稳实施。

2016 Financial Aid Report

Overview

In 2016, OCEF distributed a total of ¥2,307,395 in financial aid to students in 16 provinces through 42 coordinators. The final tally includes the following:

  • For Spring Semester, 759 students in 142 elementary and junior high schools were awarded OCEF financial aid, totaling ¥304,800, and 758 students in 64 senior high schools were awarded ¥780,500. Combined with ¥33,320 in stipends for the coordinators, verified total distribution was ¥1,118,620.
  • For Fall Semester, 669 students in 147 elementary and junior high schools were awarded ¥276,150, and 767 students in 65 senior high schools were awarded ¥793,000. Combined with ¥26,760 in stipends for the coordinators, verified total distribution was ¥1,095,910.
  • One-time college freshmen scholarships in 2016 totaled ¥110,000.
  • ¥17,135 in financial aid was returned because the intended students were no longer in the program for various reasons, such as dropping out of school or transferring.

Overall, a total of ¥2,307,395 was distributed in 2016.

Key Elements of Financial Aid Work in 2016

There have been two major improvements in the operations of the Financial Aid Department in response to past experiences and OCEF consensus on future development. One was improved coordination with other departments of the foundation. Through field visitation, summer camps, special projects, and correspondence with sponsored students, especially the summer teaching camps, we have deepened our understanding of the regions we operate in and improved information-sharing and tasks-coordination among different programs in the same region. The other was to enhance our network of operational bases and local coordinators to balance workload and improve work quality.

Also in 2016, the Financial Aid Department added the Book Sponsorship Program to further promote reading and the comprehensive growth of sponsored students. Zhang Hua, a volunteer in Beijing, took on the role of Program Director, aided primarily by other volunteers in Beijing and the online community. The program started a pilot in Spring Semester and collected survey feedback for more targeted sponsorship in Fall Semester. This was a labor-intensive process, yet the task force implemented the program with great efficiency and effectiveness and received great reviews from teachers, students and coordinators. A preliminary tally shows that 2,984 books were distributed in 2016.

Preliminary updating and data entry of financial aid feedbacks and new applications in 2016 took the dedicated efforts of 17 volunteers in Shanghai for Spring Semester and 10 for Fall Semester. Online data processing and auditing were completed by 28 and 19 volunteers for the two semesters, respectively.

All students sponsored by OCEF in Shufu County, Xinjiang, graduated in 2016. In light of increased school aid by the government in Xinjiang, both operational bases that OCEF maintained in the region have completed their mission, and have been closed.

Special Donations in 2016

  • The Shen Tsong-Long Scholarship for Students with Disabilities is a charitable fund founded by Mr. Shen Kun in 2013 with a $30K donation for the specific purpose of helping students with disabilities or disabled parents. In 2016, 16 students were awarded a total of ¥12,600 from donations made by the Shen Tsong-Long Scholarship.
  • The Hsing-Ming Chang Charitable Foundation donated $100K to OCEF, all earmarked for the financial aid program. 208 senior high school students from Shanxi, Gansu, Henan, Heilongjiang, Inner Mongolia and Sichuan received awards from this donation.

Financial Aid Department Vision for 2017

  • Expand coordinator network, improving communication between coordinators, and standardize implementation of the financial aid program through existing operational bases;
  • Work closely with the Fundraising Department to improve implementation of special funds, special sponsorships and feedback gathering;
  • Keep abreast on changes in Chinese central government policies related to school aid and optimize the network of operational bases and distribution channels for specific conditions and locations;
  • Assist other OCEF departments in adjusting operations in response to new Chinese government regulations over international NGOs and assure smooth implementation of the financial aid program in China.
