At the same time, the number of Chinese American foundations in the U.S. rose to nearly 1,300, a 418% increase from 2000 to 2014.

Chinese American philanthropist and Founder of the Global Chinese Philanthropy Initiative, John Long points out that the notion that Chinese Americans do not give as much as other ethnic groups in the country is a common misconception that he hopes the report disproves effectively.
