Fundraise to #BeeTheSolution

Help Give a Gift With Wings

Our bees are in crisis, but you are in a unique position to help.

Join the many people who are taking action to protect bees by hosting an educational fundraiser. Your event could provide information on how we can all help the bees, and also fundraise to support our #BeeTheSolution campaign, a nationwide call-to-action that will add 1 million bees to communities in need across the U.S.

 

Why host an educational fundraiser to help bees? Bees are a keystone species responsible for pollinating one-third of the food we eat. However, bees are experiencing die-offs every year due to the loss of habitat, rampant pesticide use, and there's growing research about bees and climate change that shows they're being negatively impacted. And with 40 million people in the U.S. already living in food-insecure households, losing more bees would have devastating consequences on our food supply.

How Will My Fundraiser Help?

First of all, thank you for your interest in fundraising with us. Without the support of passionate people like you, we wouldn't be able to do the work we do. Your activism will help our bee charity home 1 million bees, especially native bees, in communities most in need across the U.S.

At The Honeybee Conservancy, we create bee sanctuaries that empower communities and support local agriculture, as well as train Bee Ambassadors to lead educational events that inspire environmental stewardship. The funds you raise will help us cover the costs of operations and programs such as Sponsor-A-Hive and Citizen Science programs such as BeeBlitz.
