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.

Gould Academy was awarded with a grant to provide a trimester long Artist-in-Residency for the fall '09. Siri Beckmann, a printmaker from Stonington, Maine will live in Bethel during this time, Gould will provide all meals, and she will work with one class of students. She will be encouraged to create her own work during this residency, and to work with her students and others. At the close of the trimester, she will have an exhibition of work she has done during the residency, as well as the work of her students.
