Dragon Fund

Dragon Fund – Established in October 1958 the Dragon Fund is used to help defray operations costs for the Post. Over the years, members have generously donated, without this help we could not continue to grow the organization into what it has become. Future Post operations will rely heavily on the generosity of the Post membership in order to continue its mission, which will include a long-term sustainable presence in China through the maintenance of Ward’s Monument, the Operation of the Old Post home in Shanghai and modest scholarships to the Heavenly Kingdom Museum in Nanjing.

The first objective is to create and promote a virtual museum. An online presence that our worldwide membership can enjoy without the associated travel expense. The storyline has been written and we are now in the process of creating a “Museum Plan” which will offer us the opportunity and provide us direction for the development of an RFP for the work. The second part of that funding will be utilized to purchase a physical site that can secure and hold the China Post 1 archival material. We have already identified a number of sites that would suit our purposes.
