As a non-profit organization in the realm of higher education, the Sun Yat-sen University Education Development Foundation was registered with the Guangdong Provincial Department of Civil Affairs. The foundation aims at promoting the development of SYSU, enhancing its teaching and academic research through means of strengthening the tie between SYSU and social networks and soliciting national and international support or donation from either groups or individuals.

The foundation will undertake and manage donations from all circles of society to support SYSU’s educational cause, academic and teaching research, and excellent teachers, to assist teachers studying abroad or participate in international academic collaborations or conferences, to reward excellent students and provide financial aid for needy students, as well as to improve teaching facilities including university buildings, equipment and libraries.

Guided by its principle to gather tiny drops to make a great difference, the foundation has been active, since its establishment, in making and implementing fund raising action plans and acting as a bond between SYSU and the society. It has thus encouraged more and more social elites to express their concern and support for SYSU, widened the channel for the incoming fund to run the university and therefore made contribution to the sustainable development of the university.
