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 Huts and Trails

Mission: Maine Huts & Trails (MH&T) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create and
operate a world-class system of backcountry trails and eco-lodges for people-powered
recreation to enhance the economy, communities and environment of Maine’s Western
Mountain region for the benefit of current and future generations.

QFF Grant: Funds will be used to intensify MH&T impacts: improving the health of western Maine's communities, people, environment, and economy by operating a world-class outdoor recreation resource; drawing nature-based tourists to experience, appreciate, and ultimately conserve Maine’s wild places; creating jobs (directly
and indirectly); buying locally; promoting free public enjoyment of 80+ miles of people powered recreational trails; educating youth to be life-long stewards of the environment and making accessible physically active and spiritually renewing outdoor experiences.
