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
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.
