Request a Grant Writer

In-kind grants of bee sanctuary equipment to USA nonprofit K-12 schools, colleges and universities, environmental and community centers, Tribal education agencies, and community gardens and food banks. This program provides participants with bees and equipment to help them safely set up, maintain, and observe onsite bee sanctuaries at schools, community gardens, and green spaces across the continental United States.

Sponsor-A-Hive places native bee houses and honeybee hives across the U.S. to empower underserved communities to grow food, bolster local ecology, and protect vital keystone species. Each year, the Bee Conservancy provides bee homes, ongoing support, and educational materials to schools, gardens, and other community groups to help foster local native bee resilience.

The Bee Conservancy’s Native Bee House was designed in partnership with Longhouse Workshop in Brooklyn. Made with sustainably-sourced wood, its removable shelves provide landing boards for bees and easier maintenance for owners. With tubes for leafcutter, mason, and small carpenter bees, the Bee Conservancy has created a beautiful and practical habitat that promotes good hygiene, durability, and avoids overcrowding.

Sponsor-a-Hive awardees become part of The Bee Conservancy’s vast network of individuals and organizations dedicated to protecting bees and bolstering local food and communities. 

Some of the benefits you will enjoy as a Sponsor-a-Hive native bee house awardee are:

  • A native bee home. 
  • Instructions on setting up and caring for your home.
  • Family-friendly educational materials about native bees.
  • Access to an online community of awardees to share information, experiences, and updates.
