Why Give?

The ODAF is the sole fundraising vehicle for Old Dominion University Athletics. Through its annual fund drive, the ODAF raises contributions in support of student-athlete scholarships. The long term goal of the ODAF is to fund all ODU athletic scholarships on an annual basis.

The ODU Athletic Department receives no state funding and relies heavily on season ticket sales, sponsorships and advertising, student fees, and private contributions from our ODAF members. With your help we will continue to work to reach our goal of funding all athletic scholarships, in turn, allowing us to continue to invest in our programs for them to remain competitive in the CAA and nationally.  

The ODAF is very pleased with its recent success and the generosity of our ODAF members. In 2012 we were able to reach a record high of 2,883 donors contributing $3,399,638. Although these are benchmarks for our program, we still need to reach our goal of being fully funded, with a scholarship bill of over $7,100,000.
