It is said that only state-owned charitable foundations are legal in China. If you wanna do a research on these foundations, You could get nothing but only their names from most of these charities.

1. Is it true that "Only State-owned charitable foundations are legal in China"? Is the leaders of China's Red Cross are also Party and gov employee? Some of leaders in Charitable foundations are also high-level party and gov officials?

2. If it is true, why couldn't companies, social organizations, or single person set up legal professional charitable foundations in China?

(I heard it is illegal from the stories of "onefoundation" development in China several years ago.)

3. It said that local gov and central gov would mix money from charitable foundations with the rest of gov revenue from tax payers every year. Local gov would often decide the going and the amount of money. Sometimes, only a small part of money from charity foundations was going into charity at last.

(I heard "local gov made decisions from stories about rebuilt in Wenchuan earthquake".)

Question: Could local gov have right to distribute the spending of most of charitable foundations in China?

Even the churches, who are doing huge charitable work elsewhere in the world, have been forced to government oversight. Better say, they have been enslaved by the authorithies. There is no "private" or non-governmental civil society in China.

The party is almighty" and that is the single major cause of corruption in China. No checks and controls, everything is in one hand.
It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.

4. China have many Communist Party anti-corruption and Gov anti-corruption departments to decrease bribery and corruption.

Learning from anti-corruption's system, our party and gov set several departments to supervise Charitable foundations in China.  Would it work?

Not all charities are government owned or run, in fact small charities run by dedicated people are very common. Charity begins at home in China just like around the world.

Contrary to what happened in China, the religious clowns in Vatikan controls government's budget that it considers Catholics and threathen to overthrown leaders that object to them.
