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

Our annual goal is to fundraise 45% of our annual scholarship bill. This year that number stands at $5,000,000. 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!

Donor Spotlight

Meet Rick French and Kristin Eden!

As athletics staff/faculty members what makes you want to go above and beyond to financially support ODU Athletics and its student-athletes?

Based off my position within the athletics department (Rick) and within the university in engineering (Kristin) we are lucky to get a firsthand look at the dedication of ODU student-athletes to their sport and ODU. That is why it is so important for us to give back.  That is the reason we work with student athletes, students, and the university across the board.
