Co-organizers included ICNL, the Brigham Young University Law School, General Motors Corporation China, and LDS Charities. The principal sponsors were the Ford Foundation and the Aga Khan Development Network, France. The purpose of the Conference was to discuss the legal structures that govern the establishment and operation of charitable organizations in a number of major representative countries.
