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 Ecology School
Mission: The mission of the Ecology School is to foster stewardship for the Earth by reimagining education through the science of ecology and the practice of sustainability.
QFF Grant: Funding will provide support for the Comprehensive Planning Costs for the River Bend Farm Project. This project will allow FBES to create a fully immersive, interactive, and “living” laboratory that models thriving human and natural systems. Completion of the Comprehensive Plan will show an annual net conservation gain resulting from their educational center and activities.
