Beliefs and Guiding Principals

 

compass

The following beliefs and principles reflect the values of our foundation and form the standards for what constitutes acceptable behavior in our organization and provides a guide to measure the appropriateness of our decisions:  

  • No relationship will be as important to the 21st century as the one between the world’s super power, the United States, and the world’s rising power, China.
  • China and the United States are uniquely positioned to have a positive impact on our world.
  • Globalization is impacting every aspect of our lives; we must embrace it and make it work to the advantage of the United States and China and for the rest of the world community.
  • The United States, with the largest economy in the world, and China, with the fastest growing economy and most populated country, can achieve greater economic success and prosperity more quickly through sharing and collaboration than through protectionism and isolationism.
  • We are committed to enriching the lives of our youngsters by providing unique opportunities and exposure through the Foundation’s established global network.
  • Our educational systems in the United States and China are critical to promoting understanding and knowledge of each other to allow for acceptance and tolerance that ultimately paves the way for long-term relationship building.
  • Part of the rich cultural heritage of the human race resides in the art, music, dance, and literature of different cultures; we must share these treasures between the United States and China and the rest of the world as a way to further connect our countries.
  • As a foundation, we must be doers instead of talkers
  • We must act with honesty and integrity in everything that we do
  • We must treat our colleagues with respect and dignity
  • We must treat our donors as valued partners
  • We must deliver results with the resources that we have been given
  •  We must leave room for growth, change, and outside counsel
