Fourteen values-driven businesses have come together in support of Pollen’s mission to invest in human connection.

Together, these business and community leaders challenge Pollenites to raise $15,000 by Give to the Max Day on November 16, which they will match dollar for dollar.


Believing in the power of narrative, networking, and opportunity, the leaders behind these local enterprises embody Pollen’s mission to invest in human connection as a way to fuel empathy and momentum for social change. They do more than run businesses; they do the work on the ground to create a more kind, just, and connected community.

DONATE NOW to Match The Hive.

We are a from-the-ground-up membership network that would not exist without your involvement. The generous contributions from Pollenites keep our programs accessible, sustainable, and exceptional.

Join Pollen’s $15,000 Match The Hive campaign and double your impact before November 16, 2017.
