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 Edmund and Eleanor were salt of the earth people, who earned their living farming and ranching dry land east of Denver. As Denver, and then Aurora, continued to grow, their real estate holdings became desirable 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 benefits general charitable entities in the State of Colorado.
