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.
Select from the list of years above to explore our grantees work.
Mission: The mission of Preble Street is to provide accessible barrier-free services to empower people experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger, and poverty, and to advocate for solutions to these problems.
QFF Grant: To strengthen and build on the Summer Meals program in Maine. In Maine, one in four children is food insecure, and during summer months, many children are at higher risk of hunger because they do not have access to the nutritious food offered at school during the rest of the year. Specifically, QFF funding will be used to:
* Increase the number of new Summer Meal sites in Cumberland, Hancock, Kennebec, Oxford, Sagadahoc, Somerset, and Piscataquis Counties.
* Increase participation at existing sites.
* Create a culture of Summer Meal site ownership and responsibility to promote sustainability.
