Bee Informed Partnership

Non-profit seeks donations to support its work on behalf of the nation’s beekeepers

The Bee Informed Partnership is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to research and collect honey bee health surveillance data and make it available for all to use.

We also work closely with a large number of commercial beekeepers across the country to monitor colony health and provide them with near real time data on the overall health of their colonies so that they can make data driven decisions that help them support our national food security.

We would love to stay focused on our research and to do that we depend on your support. We are not a government organization and we are able to remain independent and unbiased in our work; however, we have an ever-growing need for additional funding to push our efforts forward.

In this, the Season of Giving, we’d like to ask you for a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and are fully tax deductible!

Please consider making a contribution to BIP so that we may continue to help lead the way in groundbreaking discoveries in the honey bee world and keep providing our beekeepers with the important information they need to keep their bees healthy!

Donate today.

Thank you so much for your support and please share this with your friends, family, old classmates, current classmates and that nice neighbor that always pops over the fence to ask “How are the bees?!” Because everyone needs bees and we make every dollar count.

Thank you,

Karen Rennich, Executive Director

A few of our projects include the Colony Loss Map, Sentinel Apiary Project, the National Management Survey, and supporting and managing the USDA APHIS National Honey Bee Pest and Disease survey.

We house and maintain the largest honey bee health database in the U.S. These data are public and free.
