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.

School Ground Greening Coalition
Funding will support three main areas including:
1) Advocacy for the crucial next step of defining actual green school ground design criteria and making effective planning processes into adopted policy.
2) To offer a workshop for architects and landscape architects to gain expertise on school ground design.
3) To create a 3-5 minute virtual tour of green school grounds projects in this area so that people beyond this area or anyone with a computer can “visit” and learn from these places.
