Vanke Foundation was initiated by Vanke Co., Ltd. and was established in 2008. It is a national non-public fundraising foundation supervised by the Ministry of Civil Affairs. In 2017, it was certified as a charitable organization and in late 2021, it was rated as a "4A National Level Social Organization" by the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

Since 2018, Vanke Foundation has followed a five-year strategic plan with the ethos of "Facing the Future, Daring to Initiate".  It focuses on issues of profound impact for the future, such as sustainable community development, and harmony between humans, society, and nature.                      

Vanke Foundation follows a work value chain of "research, pilot, empowerment, and advocacy". It works closely with hundreds of non-profits social organizations in China and collaborates with employees, residential owners, professionals, volunteers, and others to build a strong philanthropic ecosystem. The foundation is committed to promoting sustainable development from the perspectives of policy, legislation, market, and international platforms. 

In 2023, Vanke Foundation launched a new five-year strategic plan. With the vision of "a beautiful and shared future home," Vanke Foundation focuses on three key strategic modules: carbon-neutral community demonstration and promotion, community waste management, and China climate storytelling, with biodiversity as the highlight. The Foundation practices and spreads the concept of sustainable communities, taking the lead in promoting practical cooperation among the international community, and turning everyone into an actor for a better life.

Our work is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically focusing on SDG 11 "Sustainable Cities and Communities," SDG 12 "Responsible Consumption and Production," SDG 13 "Climate Action," SDG 9 "Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure," and SDG 17 "Partnerships for the Goals.

As of December 31, 2022, Vanke Foundation has made a cumulative public welfare investment of RMB 824 million yuan in the fields of community waste management, environmental protection, Covid-19 and disaster response, architectural conservation, education, poverty alleviation, child healthcare, and other areas.
