Altafiber launches Bell Charitable Foundation
Industry Announcements, , 4/19/2022
CINCINNATI – altafiber is pleased to announce the launch of the Bell Charitable Foundation, an exciting new philanthropic endeavor that will allow the technology company to more strategically support organizations driving Economic & Social Mobility, Environmental Sustainability, Technology, and Health & Wellbeing initiatives.
The Bell Charitable Foundation grants will fund programs that address the needs of the underserved; promote connectivity via digital equity; and improve the health of citizens in the communities served by altafiber and its family of companies. The Bell Charitable Foundation will award grants on a quarterly basis.
To celebrate the Bell Charitable Foundation's launch, altafiber is inviting U.S.-based nonprofits to apply for a total of $150,000 in grants – a number that honors the company’s nearly 150 years of service to the community. The Bell Charitable Foundation will award this first round of grants in July. Organizations may submit applications at www.BellFDN.org; applications are due May 20.
altafiber previously did business as Cincinnati Bell in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. The Bell Charitable Foundation is one way that altafiber is celebrating its history even as the company evolves and grows its geographic footprint beyond the traditional operating area of Greater Cincinnati.
