ODAF Donations
Just yesterday I got a postcard in the mail from the Old Dominion Athletic Fund. Said if every Alumnus that hasn't donated yet would donate $20, the total would be almost $1 million dollars (the number was precise, somewhere in the upper $900,000s). It also gave the # of Alums contacted vs. the # of Alums who donated. Not a good ratio..

This made me curious.

Have you, or will you, increase your donation amount because of our announcement to move to C-USA?

Any other changes that you'll make based on our decision to leave the Richmond Athletic League?

I don't currently donate, but will pitch in something this fall when I renew my basketball tickets, even if just $200.

I donate. I can't donate any more than I do right now with life changes.

RE: ODAF Donations
I'm headed into my senior year at ODU and just sent in my first donation to ODAF. It's only $100 but as a huge proponent for the move to CUSA, this is my way of saying 'thank you' to Wood and Broderick for their diligence to grow and improve our athletic department.

I plan on increasing about 20%. I do the monthly plan and don't miss it as bad. I started out at $300 ($25/mo).

RE: ODAF Donations
I just started donating on the day the move to C-USA was announced. Figured it was symbolic and $60/month didn't seem too bad.

RE: ODAF Donations
My donation doubled this year, prior to the announcement. Beleive it or not, the driving factor was tailgating proximity to Foreman Field and adding some folks into the Smitty group ODU experience.

RE: ODAF Donations
Ive been an BBC/ODAF member w minimum donation since 2003. I started donating "real" money when we started football and have increased 10% each year to get the 110% Club magnet. I'll continue the annual 10% increase as long as I can. This was my plan before we announced CUSA. Although I love the move, I'll still stick to this level of support bc at this time it's simply the best I can do.

Yeah a a big part of donating is points for seating priority. I also buy season fix for my parents thru me so that helps.

RE: ODAF Donations
Yeah, I never worried about basketball. I am happy with my seats and there isn't a bad one in the house. Was going to donate last year for Big Blue Room tickets, but taking away the free beer nixed that. As far as football goes, I don't have/can't get tickets so seating is kind of inconsequential. Have to rely on Craigslist for that.
