We are excited to share with the beekeeping community that the Accessible Beekeeping non-profit is officially registered as a 501(c)(3) with the federal government.
One of the primary benefits of being tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) is the ability to accept contributions and donations that are tax-deductible to the donor. This means that if you donate to our charity, you can write the donation off on your taxes!
This also means that we can start applying for grants to aid beekeepers with diverse limitations and help them to become successful as either hobbyists, side-line, or commercial beekeepers!
Our goal with the 501(c)(3) is to aid beekeepers with limitations by:
research, design, and fabricate accessible hardware that will aid in everyday tasks.
aid in the design and construction of an accessible apiary.
Connect beekeepers with disabilities to a community of beekeepers with similar struggles so that they may aid each other as well.
and much, much, more!
We are able to accept donations now from here.
We are doing a pre-order for t-shirts to raise money for the non-profit and you can get them from here.
We have also started a brand new forum to build a community of beekeepers, both able-bodied and disabled that can aid each other to be successful! You can find the forum, here.
