Why should you donate?

Mapping China is an independent, grass-roots organisaton that does not receive institutional funding in any way at the moment. We value our independence and integrity. Donations ensure long-term that we can continue setting our own agenda and research interests apart from mainstream reporting on China.

How do we spend donations?

We spend them according to our Satzung (articles of association). At the moment, we spend most of our donations on the Mapping China Journal. We publish a financial statement each year starting from 2019.

Will I receive a donation receipt / Spendenbescheinigung?

Of course! Anyone donating more than 25 Euros a year will receive a donation receipt in March of the following year. Either put our address + email on your bank slip when donating or text us your info via our contact form or via email to
