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.

Northern Forest Canoe Trail

Mission: To protect and steward the water trail and foster community vitality to promote inspiring outdoor experiences in the Northern Forest Region.

QFF Grant: Funding will support program implementation to expand their scope of work in Maine.
Specifically, the Maine field coordinator will lead the Maine work with a stewardship
crew of interns to provide training in hard skills and to teach leadership and
environmental responsibility. The Outreach Coordinator will recruit participants for the
Northern Forest Explorers program which provides youth ages 10-14 five-day paddling trips that
support outdoor experiences, leadership and environmental awareness. They will also develop a
volunteer base to offer free volunteer-led paddling trips for people interested in exploring a new
section of water.
