OAKLAND, CA. June 20, 2012 – Bell Investment Advisors today announced the firm will award an annual grant of $5000 to an organization or program dedicated to supporting youth in the arts in the East Bay (San Francisco Bay Area).
The Bell Youth-in-the-Arts Grant program reflects the firm’s belief that the arts enrich the community and contribute to its vitality as well as being essential to a well-rounded education for youth.
“As ongoing cuts in public education typically result in the elimination of arts programs from schools, we want to be part of the solution to the problem by supporting arts programs for youth in our community and encouraging other businesses to follow suit,” said Founder/President Jim Bell, CFP®.
Local organizations can download the grant application located on the firm’s website, www.bellinvest.com, and submit it no later than September 10, 2012.

Jim Bell, CFP®, President and Founder, and Bonnie Bell, Principal, and Director of Career/Life Coaching are long-time supporters of several arts organizations in the San Francisco East Bay area, including the Oakland East Bay Symphony, the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir, Cazadero Music Camp, and Festival Opera in Walnut Creek.
