The General Foundation, in accordance with Article 7 of its Statutes, has a primary mission to cooperate in complying with the aims of the University of Valencia. This task is carried out in three areas and general services through the commissioned management by the University of Valencia.

Experience and knowledge in the social-cultural setting, training and teaching, as well as the area of university cooperation for development provides the General Foundation with the tools to act as a bridge between the University of Valencia and society for information transfer and dissemination, university outreach, dissemination, cultural democratization, training and solidarity.

1. Culture and Training, which encompasses the Area of Musical Activities (Philharmonic Orchestra of the University of Valencia, La Nau Choral School, La Nau Choral Club and the Valencian Flute Group), the Martínez Guerricabeitia Collection and Exhibitions (visual arts), Cultural Heritage (cataloguing and restoration of heritage), Performing Arts (theatre), Alumni UV and Cultural Volunteering (university and citizen participation), the Gandia International Centre (Gandia Summer University, postgraduate and courses), the European Documentary Centre (information and documentation), the Digital Newspapers and Periodicals Library and the Futura Project.

2. University Services, the Professional Placement and Careers Advice Monitoring Centre (OPAL) of the University of Valencia and the Unit for the Integration of People with Disabilities of the University of Valencia (UPD).

3. Solidarity, which includes the Area de Cooperation (UNESCO Chair of Development Studies at the University of Valencia, awareness, scholarships, 0.7 Programme and InfoSud-Information and Documentary Service) and the University Centre for Early Diagnosis and Treatment (CUDAP).
