The Hive

Monthly Giving for Sweet Impact

Take me to The Hive

Let’s create a world where EVERY child can play, learn, & grow outdoors.

Time outdoors helps children thrive, yet on average, kids spend less than 10 minutes a day playing outdoors. And for many children, race, identity, and family income still determine whether they have safe and regular access to nature. At ICG, we work hard to make a safe, welcoming place in nature for every child. We do that with the support of our generous giving community – people like you. 

By joining The Hive, ICG’s monthly giving program, you help ensure the benefits of nature play are accessible to all, every single day. Even $6/month can help get one child out in nature.

What The Hive makes possible:

Just as bees work together, your monthly gift joins support from other Hive contributors to build sustaining impact at ICG. Here’s a short list of what your support will do!

  • Ensure ICG remains a free, safe, and inspired outdoor space for all children and their families.
  • Create new, innovative, hands-on programs that show children the importance of growing food, appreciating nature, and taking care of each other.
  • Provide a living wage for the professionals who tend the garden and lead our education programs
  • Meet emerging needs like improved furnishings in the yurt to make it as accessible and user-friendly as possible.
  • Bring more beauty, resilience, and justice to our world.
I'm ready to Bee part of The Hive!
