Carefully considering the needs in our world
Spreading kindness. Responding to national and international disasters. Supporting military families. Building stronger communities. Caring for individuals and families in need. Selecting community members to pay it forward.
All year long, our employees continually find inspirational ways to share our blessings through three primary programs:
- Pay It Forward
- Community Connect
- Friends and Family
Pay It ForwardA decade ago, Pay It Forward was launched at the company’s Christmas party. The program’s momentum and impact continue to grow.
Through this program, every full time employee receives $1,000 and every part-time employee $500 each year to pay it forward to those in need. In 2019, in celebration of our company's growth and success:
- Every full-time employee receives $2,500
- Every part-time employee receives $1,000
Each Bell employee decides how to Pay It Forward. Many choose individual gifts, while others pool their funds through formal and informal efforts with their colleagues. Some employees even partner with outside donors, businesses and foundations to further extend the program’s impact.
