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.

Damariscotta River Association

Mission: The Damariscotta River Association (DRA) has worked since 1973 to “preserve and promote the natural, cultural and historical heritage of the Damariscotta River and adjacent areas for the benefit of all.”

QFF Grant: To construct an accessible trail connecting Great Salt Bay Community School with the Damariscotta River, the Round Top Farm community conservation and education center (inc. Farmers’ Market), and the town sidewalk system. This trail will create a safer route to school, support existing DRA environmental education programs with the school, and enable expansion of numerous school-based initiatives from outdoor classroom to student gardens
