Hive is a place to connect and collaborate with Orcas Island’s next generation of community-minded visionaries and neighbors.

We are a small, but expanding group of leaders with a shared goal of engagement of younger community members. Our focus is on showcasing what life is like for our younger members, help people connect with and get involved in non-profit organizations, offer up social events to help foster relationships with each other, and give back through volunteer work and fundraising.

We want to inspire change, progress, and most of all continue on with the neighborly spirit and love that drew us all into this community. As residents come and go, we want to make sure people stay inspired to be a part of this community as we build roots, raise our families, create, and contribute our time and resources to this place we call home. 

The Hive fund will mainly be used for small grantmaking, as a way to introduce philanthropic opportunities for the younger generations of community donors, as well as to support our efforts of connecting and collaborating via social events and volunteer work parties.
