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

As a part of the university-wide initiative, the Old Dominion Athletic Foundation was tasked with raising $40,000,000 in support of ODU Athletics and our student-athletes. Thanks to our committed supporters, we have surpassed our goal!

In 2021, our goal is to further focus on our student-athletes. Our yearly mission is to fundraise 45% of our annual scholarship bill. This year that number stands at $4,300,000. Our unrestricted Annual Fund helps to cover this amount along with premium seating revenues. Your annual gift is critical to our success in providing championship resources in the classroom, in athletic competition, and in life. Follow our progress below and thank you for supporting ODU Athletics!


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

What do you like most about ODU as a whole? I love how welcoming the University and our fans are. We’ve adopted Old Dominion as our hometown university even though we graduated from other schools in Virginia. I’ve met some of my best friends through Old Dominion sports and am thankful for that.
