Support Bee Grants in Schools

Help Kids Learn About Pollinators! We also support pollinators through our Bee Grant. In partnership with The Bee Cause Project, our Bee Grant program allows for schools and non-profit organizations to receive support for educational beehives, so students can observe bees up close and learn about the vital role these pollinators play in our food system.

Donate to help bring new educational beehives to schools and nonprofits across the nation.
