As a 501(c)(3), Apalachee Beekeepers Association intends to solicit funds from nontraditional research sources, including member contributions, local business sponsorships, and through fund raising efforts of members. We have a fixed cost for analyzing samples (83% of total project cost). Balance of funding will be utilized to cover expenses related to collecting/preparing/shipping samples and to prepare analysis for distribution.  

In the event Apalachee Beekeepers is able to generate funding above their 37.5% contribution then the amount requested from ABF will be reduced correspondingly.
