Old Dominion was the only college or university to receive a Platinum Award for its record of participation and giving in the 2006 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign, the fund drive that solicits donations to nonprofit organizations.

Karen Travis, assistant vice president for institutional advancement, who headed the ODU effort, was on hand to receive the award recently at the CVC celebration luncheon in Richmond.

Old Dominion raised $138,740, which was 11 percent over its goal. A total of 836 employees contributed (a 42.6 percent participation rate), and the average donation was $166.

Agencies receiving Platinum Awards in ODU's size category (1,001 to 3,000 employees) were required to have a minimum 40 percent participation rate and an average gift level of $125.
