The Culture Regeneration Research Society (CRRS) was founded in 1994 as a non-profit, non-political, non-denominational, academic organization. Currently, CRRS has three directions that it is developing in China, all of them based off the models of westerners who have loved China and contributed to its development in the past. The first direction, is based on academic exchange with deep respect for the philosophy and wisdom of Classical Chinese culture. They fuse the philosophy with their religious beliefs, while critiquing the gross superstition of the Chinese folk religions. Through this fusion they hope to push Chinese-western cultural exchange through academia. The second direction, is focused on helping the needy. Through their participation in educational initiatives and philanthropy, CRRS strives to love the weak and disadvantaged youth of China. They help to build and support the many disadvantaged schools and students throughout numerous rural communities and disadvantaged urban migrants as well. The third and final direction is that CRRS holds high-level dialogues with the Chinese government, suffering through the immense tasks and problems of China and helping to move Chinese society in a positive direction.
