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 Appalachian Trail Club
Mission: The mission of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club is to keep the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) in Maine, from Grafton Notch to Katahdin, an unspoiled, natural and primitive footpath through a most scenic and challenging terrain.
QFF Grant: Funding will support a capital campaign for a Maine Trail Center. This multi-purpose facility will consist of a main building, three crew quarters, and a maintenance facility/garage. The center will provide a permanent location for meetings and events, centralized secure storage for valuable tools and equipment, and a centerpiece for collaboration with other outdoor oriented non-profit organizations.
