Changchun Kuancheng District Huayi Support Center, Hubei Mengyun County Volunteer Association, and Liangshan Heitu Ecology Cooperation Society’s QQ Discussion: They asked if their organizations could apply for funds from Transparent Fish Fund, what types of support TFish offers, and what they would need to do after registering. They also suggested that we offer an event to discuss world problems and find more outstanding organizations.
Many organizations answered their inquiries, but Henan Zhengzhou Xingyang Volunteer Association and Pingliang Volunteers gave great answers: Time will prove everything. After working with TFish for a year, we learned to cooperate and trust each other. 04/19/2013

Compassion Team’s QQ Discussion: They thank Transparent Fish Fund for their trust and support. They were chosen as the “Most Touching Blog” in the month of March. They are currently undergoing financial reform using the Enyou Financial System promoted by One Foundation and shared their progress with everyone in the group.
Sunflower Nonprofit’s QQ Discussion: 1. They submitted the request for funding and do not know when they will find out if their request is approved. 2. They have already applied twice for funds and are a partner of Transparent Fish Fund. They plan to apply again this year. What is the maximum amount they can apply for?
Our staff replies: We saw from your community blog that your last 3,000 yuan project’s expenses report is still incomplete because it has leftovers, meaning that your project is not completely finished. We will observe your organization for three to six months after you complete the previous project. After this, TFish’s US office will email you to notify you if you can reapply. We ask that you submit a financial report each quarter and send email reminders to you each time. We will look at your request as long as you fill out everything required in the report. 04/10/2013
Shanquan Youth Philanthropic Development Center and Dream Helper’s QQ Discussion: Shanquan Youth Philanthropic Development Center: We are organizing a student team to teach children in rural areas. Are there any organizations that can provide us with a partner school?
Dream Helper: Don’t blindly start organizing. Ask the school why they did not have a set student team the past two years. You need to look for reasons behind that. 04/11/2014
Longxing Nonprofit QQ Discussion: Dear fellow colleagues on the Transparent Fish Fund website: It will be great if you all can support us, Longxing Nonprofit Association, by giving us precious comments and guidance.
Our staff replies: Hi, TFish support platform is a platform for the communication and advertisement of NGOs. TFish staff will not provide guidance for any organization because you are the experts in your cause and we are outsiders. So the growth of an organization must be by its own hard work and perseverance, and the TFish website is not a website aimed to provide guidance or planning for organizations. Perhaps you do not have a clear understanding of TFish’s vision. We call for nonprofits to achieve “Transparent finances and transparent philanthropy.”
