The Chinese Relief and Development Foundation was established in June 2010, as a direct outcome of voluntary work by agencies who had responded to the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. The Foundation is sponsored by the Sichuan Association for Science and Technology and is registered with the Sichuan Civil Administration Department. The Foundation's focus is improving Chinese well-being. All projects must be sustainable, people-orientated, and co-ordinated.
CRDF is 1 of only 5 organisations in Sichuan Province that can receive public donations and has tax exemption privilege. CRDF benefits from an International Advisory Committee of Western business executives and leaders.
