Pay It Forward

Help others. Give back. Make a difference.

Opening Our Eyes and Hearts to Needs Around Us

We’ve been blessed many times over. Those blessings allow us to give.

Through our unique Pay It Forward tradition, Bell’s employees carefully consider the many needs around us and how we can help. Each year, every full-time employee receives $1,000 and every part-time employee $500 to give as they choose to individuals, families or organizations in need.

Often, employees team with each other, vendors or community members, combining gifts to meet a greater need – and widening the ripple of giving.

Paying it forward has changed all of our lives. We know we can change the world, one good deed at a time. We hope these stories will inspire you to pay it forward when you have an opportunity to lend a hand to someone in need.
