Here’s the buzz:
The Beehive Collective is a giving circle that awards grants to non-profits working toward making Raleigh a better place. Members of the Beehive Collective are interested in supporting the development of women through local activities. By pooling our resources and organizing fun events, we raise money to fund community projects. Since 2008, we’ve given away more than $150,000 in support of causes ranging from public transportation to youth healthcare.
Our Core Values:
If you’re ready to inspire and support young women leaders, help some of the most deserving causes in Raleigh, and have a good time doing it, then we’re the group for you. Come join us!

2015 Large Grant RFP
Our 2015 small grant in the amount of $2,000 was awarded to Haven House Services (HHS) for an innovative bi-weekly support group for adolescent girls involved in the juvenile justice system. For more information, click here.
Since 2008, the Beehive Collective has given away more than $150,000 to organizations in Raleigh doing amazing things.
Each year the Beehive Collective awards two grants. Members give away as much as $25,000 to a deserving Raleigh organization at our December meeting. The grant process usually begins in the late summer or early fall. We also award a small grant – usually $1,000 to $2,000 – in the early spring.
In 2014, our $25,000 large grant went to….
Walnut Creek Elementary School!
Walnut Creek Elementary School will receive $25,000 to help their students increase their reading abilities to grade level or above. They will invest in professional development for teachers, a “leveled” library for all grades, and new books for each classroom. We will keep you updated on their progress!
Our 2014 giving theme was “Innovation in Education: Supporting our Teachers.”
