The criticism is that Chinese universities are NOT transparent with donations they receive... you don't know where the money is actually going... the strict hierarchic systems often serve as hotbeds for corruption.  One can easily assume it's NOT going towards education.

This story, same title and nearly word for word, first appeared on September 9, 2014 on the Foreign Policy website... but instead of Tianqiao Chen and Chrissy Luo donating $115 million to California Institute of Technology, it was a Hong Kong family that donated $350 million to the Harvard School of Public Health.  In July 2014, Chinese real estate tycoon Pan Shiyi and his wife Zhang Xin donated $15 million to Harvard to establish a scholarship program aimed at sending poor Chinese students to the prestigious school.  In January 2010, Zhang Lei, a graduate of Yale University, made an $8.88 million donation to his alma mater, the largest gift that Yale had ever received from a young alumnus at that time.
