Virginia Outdoors Foundation

The Virginia Outdoors Foundation was established to promote the preservation of open-space lands and to encourage private gifts of money, securities, land or other property to preserve the natural, scenic, historic, scientific, open-space and recreational areas of the Commonwealth.

The Virginia Outdoors Foundation is a body politic and shall be governed and administered by a board of trustees composed of seven trustees from the Commonwealth at large to be appointed by the Governor for four-year terms.

Although VOF has been in existence for nearly five decades, the vast majority of the current acreage protected by VOF easements has been achieved since 2000, when the state created the Land Preservation Tax Credit Program, one of the the strongest tax incentives for land conservation in the nation.

The Virginia Outdoors Foundation operates seven regional offices across the Commonwealth, as well as a legal office in Williamsburg.
