DONATIONS TO ANNUAL FUND INCREASE BY 11 PERCENT

Donations topped $225,000 in the 2007 Campus Community Campaign, which represents an 11 percent increase over last year's total.

Also up - by 12 percent - was the number of faculty and staff who pledged (986).

"These amazing numbers showcase the campus community's belief in ODU," said Dawn M. Richardson, assistant director of annual giving.

Thirteen giving units exceeded their goals. Leading the way was Institutional Advancement at 190 percent, followed by the Darden College of
Education, 162 percent; Auxiliary Services, 158 percent; and Materiel Management, 151 percent.

Human Resources headed the participation rate category, with all of its employees making donations. Ranking second and third were President's Office/Development/Alumni Relations (88 percent) and VP/Budget/Audit Area (85 percent).

The College of Business and Public Administration and the Development Office received doughnut parties for their participation rates.
