Piedmont Fox Hounds Conservation Fund

Uniting to Protect our Shared Landscape & Equestrian Traditions in Piedmont Virginia.

Support our equestrian and sporting hound traditions.

The Piedmont Fox Hounds Conservation Fund is dedicated to fostering the conservation of Virginia Piedmont’s open spaces. We strive to enhance our community’s knowledge and appreciation of the long-term care required to protect our landscape. Our mission is to preserve the diverse wildlife habitats that nourish the native plants and animals inhabiting our Virginia countryside.

Founded in 2021 to make a regional difference.

PFHCF is a tax-deductible non-profit that benefits the preservation of open landscape, natural habitats, and equine and sporting hound activities.
