The Quimby Family Foundation has been awarding yearly grants since 2005. We proudly partner with non-profits throughout the state of Maine to promote Human Wholeness. To us, Human Wholeness is physical, emotional, social, and spiritual health and we believe in the inherent value of nature to advance all four.

Friends of Cobbossee Watershed
Friends of Cobbossee Watershed were awarded a grant to double the number of children currently attending the Nature Day Camps from 35-40 to 75-80 children. Held during February and April school vacation weeks, the Nature Day Camps get children outdoors and allow them to participate in activities that many children today no longer have the opportunity to experience. The grant will secure the necessary additional qualified staff and subject-matter experts in areas including tracking & primitive skills, and purchase a base amount of equipment including snowshoes, GPS units and fishing gear to support the increased number of participants.
