MISSION: BELL educates, advocates for and funds small, minority, rural and woman-owned businesses in Maryland that have been denied capital. BELL ensures the continued hiring of local workers and the development of stronger, safer, thriving communities.
What is BELL?
BELL is a non-profit (501c3) organization that is committed to providing business owners the training and support they need to access capital, increase revenue, add jobs and have a positive impact on the Maryland economy. BELL serves the entire Maryland business community, not just Baltimore. BELL raises money for our Small Business Fund through event ticket sales, sponsorships and donations.
Why Join THE BELL COMMUNITY?
Your participation as a Member or Sponsor grows the BELL Small Business Loan Fund that lends to small, woman-owned and minority businesses. Additionally, your support creates training programs that guide the smart growth of local companies.
BELL serves all of the state of Maryland.
BELL is so thankful to our largest financial supporters, TRUIST and the Maryland Aviation Administration.
Their sponsorship and membership has provided support for business owners across Maryland and their leadership has inspired others to step up and help BELL in its mission.
