2021 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the BELLA reLOVEution!

 

As you know, BELLA has always been more than a banking experience. We work to provide each of our members with personal connections as well as those customizations for your app screens, goals, and even pronouns. We haven’t always been perfect, but you’ve stood by us as we continue to grow and learn — for that, we cannot thank you enough for your support and patience throughout our first 6 months of business!

Giving and receiving joy
is our main goal.

Giving and receiving joy is our main goal and that’s why our BELLA Surprise programs are at the core of everything we do. So far, this has been on a singular, personal level with Surprise Cashback from BELLA to you or with Karma Surprises from one member to another, but it’s time to go bigger and do more.

 

We’re ready to expand beyond the individual – that’s where you, our Community, comes in. We want to honor the things you’ve told us are important to you and create a positive, lasting impact in the communities around you. To do this, we’re partnering with multiple organizations that embody and uphold the BELLA values. We’re calling this new program Community Donations.

 

We’ve started small with three charitable organizations located in different regions of the US (more on these organizations coming soon). Through diligent vetting and research our BELLA Community team has found – what we believe to be – important Changemakers with programs that relate to the individuals in our community. As this program grows we will continue to add more initiatives to expand our impact across the world.

 

We call these groups “Changemakers” because they could be not-for-profit businesses, local clubs or organizations, or even an individual who is working to change their community for the better. Just as with the financial partners we choose to work with, our promise to you remains: we will only collaborate with causes that align to our values for joy, inclusivity, beauty, and tenderness.

Your continued trust is what helps us build these amazing programs, and that trust depends on our transparency to keep us all honest and accountable. So, every initiative we provide to you is carefully evaluated and reference checked before we approve the project. It’s important to us that you know you can trust anyone and anything you learn about from BELLA. You work hard for your money, and you deserve to know where it is going as well as the amazing impact you have on the world around you.

 

If you ever have questions about our programs, reach out to the BELLA team by typing “human” in the App and we will be there to assist. We’ve also got some new FAQs to explain how it all works.

 

Let’s step up together to make a difference now. Get started in the BELLA App or, if you prefer, you can read this tutorial.

 

This isn’t just a new program, it’s a passion BELLA shares with you. You’re part of this community to improve the world in tangible ways, and together we can affect positive changes.

If you head over to the BELLA App, you can see the current initiatives and information about ways to get involved by typing “Community Donations”. You’re in control, so you decide how and when you contribute to any of our programs in your Settings.

 

Follow us and keep an eye on our Instagram for up to date highlights about our current and future Changemakers plus details about current events, Good News, and quick tips. Instagram will continue to be our main connection platform for the BELLA Community, so if there are causes you care about or would like to tell us about, DM us on Instagram or answer our stories when we ask for recommendations!

 

If you don’t use Instagram, we will occasionally be sending SMS text messages and emails so you can stay in the know about the Community work, but this will be less frequent since we don’t want to overwhelm you with updates.

 

Thanks for being a part of our mission to disrupt the status quo. We wouldn’t be here (or able to do these amazing things) without you.
