Contributions Exceed $235,000 in Campus Community Campaign

Donations topped $235,000 in the 2008 Campus Community Campaign, a facet of the university's Dominion Fund.

"We did really well this year and I am proud to say that 961 faculty and staff of Old Dominion raised $235,706 for our university," said Dawn M. Richardson, assistant director of annual giving.

The total represents 101 percent of goal for the "I Believe in ODU!" campaign, which kicked off March 25, and exceeds last year's amount by approximately $10,000. Ten giving units went above their participation goals in this year's fund drive.

Walter W. Berry, lecturer of accounting, won the drawing for the reserved parking space for a year (open to employees who contributed $100 or more).

The two areas with the highest participation rates, and winners of a doughnut party, are the President's Office/Office of Development and Alumni Relations (86 percent), and the College of Business and Public Administration (77 percent).

The areas that reached 100 percent or more of their participation goal are: Auxiliary Services, Human Resources, Materiel Management, VP/Budget/Audit, College of Arts and Letters, College of Business and Public Administration, Frank Batten College of Engineering and Technology, Distance Learning, Institutional Advancement and Perry Library.
