The foundation office is attached to the Public Relations Department.
 
The mission of the foundation is to strive for the support from enterprises, institutions, social groups and individuals at home and abroad within the allowance of the state laws and regulations, and gather the social resources to promote the development of SCUT education career. It is founded to accept and manage the donations to SCUT. And the donations are distributed to education and scientific research, talents introduction and outside communication, campus construction, scholarships and stipends, student activities, and other university educational projects. And the donations of special projects can be used for special purposes according to the choice of the donors.
