HOW WILL FUNDS BE USED/DISPERSED?
All donations and grants keep this vehicle – Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. – running. While grants are typically very specific with what they are to be used for, donations can be specified by the donor. Our focus is that any and all funds would go evenly toward our BIG 4 in the following manner:
- 30% toward continuing education/scholarships AND funding field trips (at qualifying farms – Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. will lay out the qualifications
- 25% toward funding/building/managing non-traditional farming events/activities at qualifying farms (Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. will lay out the qualifications)
- 25% toward a local, state and/or national bee association.
- 20% of all donations and grants (unless the grant does not allow for this) will go toward administrative costs for Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. (insurance, accounting and/or tax services, office expenses, web site and social media services, marketing & promotions, lawyer expenses, any stipends/salaries/contractor compensation, etc.), event/activity/liquor license fees, etc. A donor can choose to put their donation toward one, all four or any combination of the BIG 3 (outside of the 20% being dispersed for administrative costs and any processing fees assessed by PayPal).
