As we enjoy our 97th season of foxhunting the historic properties and farmlands of Charles City and beyond, the Princess Anne Hunt Board of Directors hopes that you will consider supporting Princess Anne Hunt's Hunt Preservation Fund. 

In 2018, Master Ed Mitchell, with the support of the Board and generous members, raised $130,000 to establish this fund for capital needs and emergencies. Since then, the Hunt Preservation Fund has paid for the down payment on the Huntsman’s house, installation of a new septic field, new pick-up truck and horse trailer, kennel improvements for hound safety and comfort, the acquisition of a new horse; and tracking collars for the hounds.

Thanks to membership dues and successful Hunt Balls over the last few years, our operating budget is in great shape, so the day-to-day needs of the Huntsman, hounds and horses are being met. The Hunt Preservation Fund must be replenished to be able to continue to meet necessary capital expenses that are outside of the operating budget. The PAH Board is seeking to raise $50,000 over the next two fiscal years--which run May 1-April 30-- for the Hunt Preservation Fund. This will position Princess Anne Hunt for financial strength as we approach our 100th anniversary.

These funds will be used to complete the much-needed exercise yards for the hounds; roof repairs for the horse stable, additional kennel improvements, maintenance and eventual replacement of the truck and trailer; emergency needs, and more.

All of the PAH Board of Directors have made pledges to this important campaign. We hope that you will join us and make a gift to the Hunt Preservation Fund. You can either send a check to:  Princess Anne Hunt at 12200 Tylers Mill Road, Charles City, VA 23030; or pay with a credit card by contacting Treasurer Tim Watson at Contact with any questions.

All gifts are appreciated and will be recognized at the annual meeting. If you make a donation at these levels, you will receive a small PAH gift and your name will be included on a plaque at the kennels: Donor - $500; Contributor - $1000; Sustainer - $2500; Legacy $5000 and above.

Thank you for your consideration of this important effort that supports our Huntsman, horses and hounds.

All of our very best regards,

Travis Gibson, MFH

Edward Mitchell, MFH
