Whole Kids Foundation Invites Applications for Bee Grants

The Whole Kids Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) founded by Whole Foods Market, is dedicated to helping kids eat better and works to support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness.

To that end, in partnership with the Bee Cause Project, the foundation invites applications for its Bee Grants Program, which provides support for educational beehives and bee programming for schools and nonprofit organizations so students can observe bees up close and learn about the vital role these pollinators play in our food system. Recipients can apply for a choice of a monetary or equipment grant intended to support schools in bringing live bees to their campus or grow their existing educational hive program. Recipients will have a choice of a $1,500 monetary grant, an equipment grant: indoor observation hive, or an equipment grant: traditional Langstroth hive.

The foundation will host webinars to discuss the grant opportunity on September 15, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. PST / 12:00 p.m. CST / 1:00 p.m. EST and October 4, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. PST / 5:00 p.m. CST/ 6:00 p.m. EST.

The Bee Grant application window is from September 1 through October 15, 2021, with Bee Grant packages to be delivered in February 2022.

Eligible applicants include K-12 Schools or nonprofits that serve any grades K-12 in the United States or Canada.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and to register for the application webinars, see the Whole Kids Foundation website.

Deadline: October 15, 2021
