    The Bee Grant program allows for a school or non-profit organization to receive support for an educational bee program.   

    We offer four grant options:

    1. Monetary grant of $1,500 to support the success of a bee hive educational program
    2. Observation Hive: equipment grant with a custom made indoor observation hive 
    3. Traditional Langstroth Hive: equipment grant with an outdoor hive 
    4. Top Bar hive: equipment grant with an outdoor top bar hive  

    All equipment grants include a stipend of $300 to cover the first year of expenses. Grant recipients also receive remote consultation, assistance with Beekeeper partnership, and a Teaching Hive. For more information on each grant option, please read the Program Overview and Support Guide on The Bee Cause Project’s Resources page.
