Fourteen of the region’s most value-driven small businesses have come together in support of Pollen’s mission to build better connected communities by breaking down barriers of narrative, networking, and opportunity.

Together, they challenge Pollenites to raise $15,000 by December 31, which they will match dollar for dollar.



The leaders behind these enterprises embody Pollen’s mission to build better connected communities, and they know our work to connect across difference is more critical than ever.


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.
