Join our Founding Patrons and help us create and epidemic of belonging! These brilliant peeps have provided tremendous support, with $37,000 raised since we first launched the bHive project in 2016.  For a world first, brand new cooperative tech platform every dollar counts!

If local sharing, mutual aid and community matter to you … if local cooperative ownership and enterprise matters to you … if ownership and control of your data matters to you … if you want to see the Villages platform and your own bHive Cooperative in your town … if you want a local economy that is good for people and place … then think about making a donation and becoming a bHive Founding Patron.
