Old Dominion Athletic Foundation

Cheerleaders at Football Game

In 1964, the Old Dominion University Intercollegiate Foundation was formed to financially support the athletic program. In the initial year, 30 donors helped raise $5,000. Several years later, in 1971, the Big Blue Club was formed to add a social component to the foundation.

Over the years we have evolved into an organization that still retains the annual fund as our top priority, but now provide support through endowments, capital projects, coaches retention, enhancement funds all the while offering social opportunities and special events. This growth as well as a desire to unify under a single brand identity that is more closely tied to the university, its mission and athletic department led to the formation of the Old Dominion Athletic Foundation.
