Help the beehive collective raise $20,000 to support nonprofits working on sustainability in Raleigh.

The beehive collective has selected Sustainability: People, Planet, and Prosperity as its 2011 theme for grant making. The Beehive Collective seeks to fund work in Raleigh that simultaneously meets the triple bottom line of sustainability:
1. People – social justice & community. Improving public health and well being; fighting poverty, racism and other forms of inequality; and building a more vibrant and inclusive community.
2. Planet – minimizing our negative impacts on the planet and having clean water to drink, healthy air to breathe, green space for exercise and recreation in our beautiful hometown, and sustainable forms of transportation and development as our city grows.
3. Prosperity – strengthening Raleigh's local economy. The strongest bonds that hold our community fiber together are forged only when a community controls the fate of its own dollars.

There are a wide variety of types of projects the Beehive would consider funding under this theme including community gardening, environmentally friendly housing or landscaping, advocacy for mass transit, and many others.
