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.

Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association
To restore an abandoned gravel pit and establish an orchard that will include hundreds of historic apple and pear varieties traditionally grown in Maine. Since many of these varieties are on the verge of becoming extinct, the orchard will serve as a repository for this genetic material and will model agricultural stewardship for backyard growers, orchardists, educators, and those interested in agricultural history.
