Rise to the Challenge Fund Helps Members of the ODU Community During COVID-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted all of our lives in unprecedented ways. As the Monarch community faces this crisis together, we know that many students, faculty and staff are coping with challenges, such as travel, housing, food, technology, unemployment, health and wellness and other expenses. To help address this, Old Dominion University has set up the Rise to the Challenge Fund to help support those who face difficult situations.

The Rise to the Challenge Fund provides financial resources that allow the university to respond to the critical needs of our Monarch community. Nearly every part of the Old Dominion University campus benefits from gifts made to the Rise to the Challenge Fund.

The lion's share of this campaign comes from dedicated and generous donors like you. To date, the campaign has raised more than $36,000.

Your gift is needed more now than ever. Go to this link to donate. Reign on!
