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 2022, 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 $4,600,000. 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!

Why do you support ODU Athletics and its student-athletes?

I support ODU athletics because I want to see ODU win on the field and the court. I think that college athletics is a good way to gain national recognition for a university. Old Dominion is a great university and deserves to be well known beyond Hampton Roads and Virginia. I want our student athletes to have first class facilities and a first class college career so that the most talented high school athletes will consider Old Dominion as a top choice.
