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.

Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center
Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center was awarded a grant to support Teen-Elementary School Shows. TESS is a unique after-school program/collaboration with local schools that provides an unusual mix of fun and performance with literature and art education. Under the supervision of professional theater and art directors, high-school students write plays based on children’s literature, and direct elementary student actors in the plays, while teen art directors help art kids prepare sets, backdrops and props. They then present two shows, one for the entire school and one for the parents and community. The program is free to students, and is often their first experience of live theater.
