Q. HOW CAN MY CHARITY GET SUPPORTED BY THE hive?
A. New Charities "apply" by filling out our online application. For more info, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like, please follow us on Facebook or Instagram we will be letting people know when we will be opening up our application process.
Q. WHO GETS PAID THEN? WHO'S ACTUALLY MAKING MONEY OFF THIS?
A. As a 501c3, The Hive is profit-engine for, and only for, the charities we support. The Hive Board are all volunteers and have hired, at industry standards, employees to work and run the restaurant.
Q. ARE YOU A 501(C)(3) ORGANIZATION?
A. YES! Your donations are tax deductible!
Q. ARE YOU REALLY THE "FIRST OF YOUR KIND"?
A. Well, in the State of Wisconsin, YES! Our extensive research via Google confirms that at present, no other restaurant is a 501c3 giving back 100% of the net profit as well as offering a work conduit for those with barriers to employment. Others have definitely created a similar way of giving back and raising funds through business, but our model of choosing your own charity, and giving back through the social and communal nature of eating and drinking is definitely the first of its kind.
Q. HOW CAN I HELP or be involved?
A. In a number of ways:
Patronize The Hive, often!
