The Edmund T. and Eleanor Quick Foundation is a small private foundation, created by Mary Eleanor Quick in honor of her husband, Edmund T. Quick.   Both of them were down-to-earth folks, who earned their living farming and ranching dry arid property east of the Denver metro area.  As Denver, and then Aurora, continued to grow, their real estate holdings became desired for future development.  They were both religious people who always thought of others and the Quick Foundation will continue their legacy for years to come.

The Quick Foundation is a private foundation benefiting general charitable groups  in the State of Colorado.  The Foundation supports a wide variety of concerns and causes. The Quick Foundation will not make grants to conduit organizations or to individuals, but only directly to worthwhile 501(c)(3) charities.

As a small private foundation, the Quick Foundation generally prefers to make grants to smaller organizations where such grant making activity will have an impact.  Past grants have included historic preservation, education, elder care and services, religious organizations, music education, public recreation facilities, and animal care - all important themes in its existence.  From a humble beginning of just a few thousand dollars, the Quick Foundation has given over $750,000 to over 100 different charitable organizations all over Colorado.
