Beehive is a tech for good project being incubated by The Centre for the Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST for short). CAST is a registered charity (1161998) that works to accelerate the use of technology for social good by working with funders, ventures, and the tech for good sector at large.
Much like the humble honeybee we believe that social sector organisations are essential to healthy and productive communities, and that without them countless communities would be worse off. That’s why we’re committed to developing technology that helps them find the right funders for their essential work.
Nothing, a ‘basic’ account is free and always will be.
We intend to introduce a ‘professional’ account type in the future that would be paid for, and extend the features available to you on Beehive. There would be no obligation to upgrade, and your ‘basic’ account privileges will not be affected.
As Beehive is a tech for good project, all income will be reinvested back into the development and running of the platform.

None of the funders currently on Beehive provide funding directly to individuals instead they support organisations or projects delivered by groups. We strongly advise you to only sign up if you are associated with an organisation or project seeking charitable funding.
If you are a funder please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to get started.
This means that either, we have your details on our records, or another person has signed up for your organisation or project. If this is the case then please get in touch with email@example.com requesting access to your organisation or projects account.

Yes. On Beehive there are funders that support a range of different types of organisations and projects. Simply use Beehives eligibility checker to quickly understand if your organisation or project meets the minimum requirements for a given funder.
Unfortunately, none of the funders on Beehive provide funding for individual beneficiaries. However there are other online tools available that may help you to find funding for an individual beneficiary, such as SENDirect, The Prince’s Trust, and Turn2us.
Unfortunately not, the funders on Beehive only provide support to charitable organisations or projects directly. Meaning, that they are unable to support individuals who are fundraising on behalf of an organisation or project.
This is because organisations and projects are often required to have a written governing document, and separate bank account to ensure the appropriate use of charitable funding.
