On July 9, the Beehive Collective hosted our mid-year grantee panel, where attendees received an update from some of our past recipients. It was a fun evening to share a few beers, hear about how Raleigh nonprofits are putting our money to good use and share the good work of the Beehive. Read below to see how some of our past grantees continue to help our community with their work.

While reporting stories no longer covered by traditional media, the Raleigh Public Record tests new ways to convey news and helps train a new generation of journalists. The Record was awarded the Beehive’s $1,500 small grant. Founder Charles Duncan participated in the panel discussion to give us an update on the types of stories the Record has covered for the Raleigh Community.
