Philanthropy is Me

The China-U.S. Women's Foundation ( is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization in the U.S. and China is addressing significant global challenges through the SAGE Initiative powered by engagement and collaboration.

A Global Community

Through bespoke communications, CUSWF seeks to engage supporters, affiliate groups and partners. We offer a range of information, networking and professional development opportunities. We encourage reciprocal relations with our friends, members and partners. 


Every experience within the CUSWF has been and will be enhanced by philanthropy. Our Philanthropy is Me Initiative invites participation from a wide range of donors to translate their passions into action through our platforms. 

We envision this to be a paradigm shift called philtech, using digital methods as well as personal encounters to power change. 

We will regularly reach out to our community for their thoughts, feedback and support.

CUSWF Philanthropy Awards

We will be announcing winners of the CUSWF Philanthropy Awards in upcoming months. Women who have shown leadership, foresight and commitment to improve conditions for women and their families will be honored and celebrated. 

Don't just give to good causes, become part of the change through your own passion and personal actions which we'll showcase and share with others. 

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  - Chinese Proverb
