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.

The Tides Institute and Museum of Art

Mission: The Tides Institute & Museum of Art serves as a cultural anchor and cultural catalyst — it builds cultural collections and exhibits cultural works; fosters and creates new cultural works; strengthens cultural ties within the greater Passamaquoddy region, between New England and the Atlantic Provinces, and to the wider world; and engages a broader public and schools through involvement with its activities and collections.

QFF Grant: To support the required fire regulation improvements on two historic community buildings in the center of Eastport. Improvements will allow the buildings to be repurposed for new arts initiatives that will capitalize on the buildings’ unique qualities and add new capacity for the arts.
