合肥翻译公司（www.ahybfy.com）2015年12月5日了解到：在脸书首席履行总裁马克·扎克伯格决定捐出他的大多数财富赠给慈悲事业以后，我国富豪团体受到了不断添加大众逼捐的压力。Wealthy Chinese have come under public pressure to be more charitable after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided to donate the majority of his wealth to philanthropic causes.
Chinese people have showered Zuckerberg with praise after the 31-year-old magnate announced Tuesday following the birth of the couple’s daughter that he would donate 99 percent of his Facebook shares to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, currently worth about $45 billion.
"He’s really a special tycoon, living in an ordinary house, wearing ordinary clothes, and finds an ordinary-looking wife," another Weibo user wrote.
Under the hashtag "Zuckerberg donated 99 percent of his shares," the topic had garnered around 5 million views by press time since it was posted on Tuesday.
Some pointed out the marked contrast between US entrepreneurs and their Chinese counterparts who are accused of being stingy.
"The wisest person donates his money to medical care … I hope the tycoons and celebrities in China can pay more attention to the environment, healthcare and education, buy fewer Koenigsegg [luxury race] cars," one Weibo user wrote.
Others mentioned the reluctance of many of China’s wealthy to attend a dinner hosted by Warren Buffett during a 2010 trip to China to promote philanthropy.
Public pressure on China’s rich has grown in recent years, especially after major disasters.
At a speech at Peking University in September, Ma fleshed out the reasons why he was not donating most of his money like some Western philanthropists.
"Chinese entrepreneurs have limited resources. Their first responsibility should be to use their money for investment, create more jobs and wealth," he said. "If we donate all our money when we’re young, and many entrepreneurs have not learned how to spend their money, this will not benefit China."
"It’s unfair to criticize Chinese entrepreneurs for not taking an active part in philanthropy. They [the wealthy] have done a lot for charity. Philanthropy is everyone’s responsibility," Song Houliang, chief editor of the Beijing-based magazine China Philanthropist told the Global Times Wednesday. The magazine focuses on charitable acts by Chinese entrepreneurs.
Based on a report published on January 6 by Beijing Normal University’s China Philanthropy Research Institute, donations from the country’s top 100 philanthropists more than doubled in 2014 to 30.4 billion yuan ($4.8 billion) compared to the figure for 2013.
Mao Shoulong, a professor of public administration at the Renmin University of China, said that it’s unfair to draw comparisons between Chinese and American philanthropists, since philanthropy has been thriving in the US for more than a century, while it is relatively new in China.
