Since the first race in 1978, Mariann de Tejeda used the Foxfield Races as a vehicle for community support. Foxfield has given back to the local community from the earliest days, and our dedication to continuing the tradition is strong. Our stated intention is to establish a long-term relationship with a local social justice charity as well as a local medical charity.
In 2021, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville was announced as the long term partner of the fall races.
In 2022, Camp Holiday Trails was announced as the long term partner for the spring races.
Foxfield is committed to not only monetarily supporting our partners after race day, but actively engaging in their programs and work throughout the year, celebrating and supporting their community work by amplifying their messages, and spreading their missions to a broader community.
$266,780 reinvested back into the community since 2021
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville : “We bring people together to build and rebuild homes and communities while catalyzing new pathways to safe, decent, affordable housing.” Foxfield’s partnership with Habitat provides financial support to Habitat’s Southwood neighborhood and as importantly bring the Habitat mission and story to the broad and diverse supporters of Foxfield.
Camp Holiday Trails, a Charlottesville non-profit that provides camp experiences to children ages 7 – 17 with medical needs from Virginia and surrounding states, is our spring race partner.
