June is National Pollinator Month – a time to celebrate bees and spread the word about how we can protect them and educate each other and our children about the important role that they play in our ecosystem and the foods that we eat. Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we eat – yet their habitat is shrinking, and many species are in danger. With support from supplier partners and customers, our goal is to build awareness about this cause and fund more bee grants to get more students excited about the world of bees!

To appreciate your generous support, Whole Kids Foundation will feature your company logo or name in:

$50,000 Queen Bee Sponsorship

$2,000 Contribution Level

Building a connection with a school garden or bee hive grant recipient is a powerful way to connect with our work in a meaningful way. With a minimum contribution of $2,000, you can support a school garden or bee hive grant! And, if you have a goal of supporting multiple schools, we can make that happen, too.

Each year, we have a waiting list of qualified schools ready to teach kids about where their food comes
from and the important role pollinators play. Our team will share qualified garden and bee hive grant
programs based on your specific criteria.

As thanks for your participation, Whole Kids Foundation will:

  • Promote your generosity on our website as a Garden Circle/Bee Hive Club sponsor
  • Send an email to awarded school(s) acknowledging the gift and include your contact information should you wish to be identified
  • Make an introduction to the school directly should you desire to cultivate a relationship

Contribution Levels Vary

Our Scanback Donation Program allows Whole Foods Market suppliers to contribute a portion of product sales to Whole Kids Foundation to support our work. More customers are interested in supporting brands that give back.

These scanback donation requests are submitted directly to Whole Foods Market Global Purchasing through the promo calendar and occur when products are on national promotion for a limited time or are offered as an exclusive item.

As thanks for your participation, Whole Kids Foundation will

  • Promote your generosity on point-of-sale signage distributed to WFM stores
  • Communicate your support to global, regional, and store team members
  • Run sales report and send invoice to supplier directly for payment

Special Note: Funds raised through the Scanback Donation Program may be applied to
sponsorship opportunities.
