How to Give

ODU is a state-supported institution, but it does not run on state funds alone. Private donations are essential to maintain the high levels of quality and excellence that students, alumni and supporters of ODU have come to expect.


University Foundations

The university's foundations provide additional support to key areas of the university, ranging from educational programs to athletics to capital projects and development.
