Help shape our direction
we're about to give away our second largest grant ever - $50,000!
Each year, the Beehive holds at least two membership meetings. The first in the spring is to select our giving theme for the year. The Beehive Board researches and presents several themes for the membership to choose from to shape our large grant for the year.
This year, the membership selected Food Insecurity as our giving theme.
The final meeting of the year in December allows those who have paid their pledges in full to vote on our large grant recipient. The Grants Committee will walk through the options, budgets and proposals as well as share details of site visits. On Dec. 11 (Trophy on Maywood, 6pm), our members (who have fulfilled their 2018 pledge) will vote to give away $50,000 to a Raleigh nonprofit working on Food Insecurity. Pledged members who have not paid their 2018 pledge can bring a check to the meeting. Read more about becoming a Bee here.
Our 2018 small grant of $5,000 has been awarded to The Hope Center at Pullen. The award will fund stipends for 5 young women in or aging out of foster care in the Internship Program. Stay tuned for the exciting announcement of 2018's large grant winner!
