The Old Dominion Athletic Foundation

The Old Dominion Athletic Foundation, commonly referred to as the ODAF, was established in 1964 with the mission to provide the resources necessary for the success of Old Dominion Athletics and our student-athletes. The ODAF is the channel through which our fans and alumni can partner with our coaches and student-athletes for the advancement of the athletics program.

odaf because of you

In August of 2017 ODU President, John Broderick, announced a fundraising initiative for Old Dominion University.  As a part of the university wide initiative, the Old Dominion Athletic Foundation is being tasked with raising $40,000,000 in support of ODU Athletics and our student-athletes.  As we look to move our program forward it is our mission for ODU Athletics to be recognized nationally for excellence in intercollegiate athletics.  We are confident that this athletics initiative will give ODU Athletics the resources to rise to national prominence.


Because of you, we create winners in the classroom, in athletic competition, and in life!

Donor Spotlight

Meet Matt DeLong, Proud Supporters of ODAF!


Why do you support ODU Athletics and its student-athletes?  I’m proud to be an ODU alumnus.  I really enjoy athletics at the collegiate level and living in Hampton Roads allows me to attend many ODU athletic events.  By supporting the athletes through my family’s attendance at events and financially through the ODAF I feel as though I am giving back to a University that provided me with so much.

What makes you the most proud of ODU?  The positive footprint ODU is leaving on the world through its graduated alumni.  If you look around the Hampton Roads area, the State of Virginia, the rest of the country, and abroad, there are ODU alumni working every day to make the world a better place.  I’m proud to be a small part of those who represent ODU improving our world.
