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.

School Ground Greening Coalition

Mission: The School Ground Greening Coalition is a partnership of individuals and public and private
organizations dedicated to the transformation of school grounds into vibrant and sustainable
community-designed natural spaces providing opportunities for education, recreation, and
environmental stewardship.

QFF Grant: General operating support will be used for staff and consultants to work with the Early Childhood Learning Environments Collaborative on the development and distribution of a guide to creating outdoor play spaces. The most important impact will be that more young children will have access to nature play, and all of the benefits it brings.
