Taipei Times - archives: "Giving is more than just publicity

Taiwan's skill at fundraising is outstanding among Asia-Pacific nations, and at various international conferences this ability has often earned the admiration of delegates.
But, underlying this enormous ability to mobilize resources is a relatively immature legal environment. Most politicians and the public in Taiwan have a narrow definition of philanthropy, which is equated with charity. People lack the concept of philanthropic investment.
This situation is aggravated by the media, who have focused on the bickering surrounding the issue, and have not exercised effective supervision or contributed to social progress in this regard"
