Membership Programme

Many of our supporters have asked us how they can join CIF as members, in order to show their support for our work in ways other than through financial donations.

Our members play a vital role in supporting us and promoting our work to their networks. As a relatively new charity, we are keen to extend our mission for an enhanced dialogue with China to as many interested parties and potential supporters as possible.

Accordingly, we have established a three-tier membership programme with a range of benefits that we hope our supporters will find useful. We hope that some of you will become volunteers with CIF, lending your expertise and time to support the development of our activities.

As we continue to grow, we will broaden the range of ways to be involved and support our work, to include joint membership and corporate membership.

Individuals can now join China Insight Foundation as a Member, a Benefactor Member and as a Patron.
