Cash Donations

Most gifts to the ODAF take this form and it's as easy as writing a check or using your Visa, MasterCard, or American Express card. Checks should be made payable to the Old Dominion Athletic Foundation. Payment plan options are available; please contact the ODAF office for additional information.

Payroll Deduction

ODU Faculty / Staff please contact the ODAF if you are interested in the convenience of payroll deduction to make your gift.


You may eliminate paying capital gains tax and receive an income tax charitable deduction for gifts of long-term appreciated securities.

Gifts in Kind

Gifts of goods or services can be of great financial assistance to the Athletic Department while offering the donor a tax deduction for the fair market value of the gift. Please consult your tax advisor and contact the ODAF for further information.

Matching Gifts

Many companies will match your contribution to the ODAF. Submit your company's matching gift form with your contribution and it can significantly increase your support and associated giving level.

Per IRS Publication 526, the IRS 80/20 Rule relating to charitable contributions from which a donor receives or expects to receive benefits (the right to purchase parking passes, priority seating for events, etc.) must also be applied to the matching gift claims as well. If benefits are related to a ODAF contribution, the matching claim could only be submitted for 80% or the portion of the contribution, the matching claim could only be submitted for 80% or the portion of the contribution which is considered truly charitable and tax deductible. Please make note of this IRS policy when considering your ODAF contribution.

Memorial Gifts

Remember a friend or a loved one with memorial gifts to the ODAF.

Estate Planning

You may donate through will provisions, life insurance, and other bequests. Estate gifts may be made by donating a designated amount, a real estate asset or making a residual bequest. If you are interested in including ODU in your Estate Plans, please contact our ODAF staff.
