ELLA BING was founded based on the mission to give back to others in need while encouraging all gentlemen to dress as dapper and sophisticated as possible. We opened our online store in 2012 and our first brick and mortar location in Tampa, Florida in 2018.
We provide a percentage of our sales to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, a 501C3 non-profit that increases awareness about suicide prevention.
While we are very passionate about giving back to our local community, we are also committed to helping develop the next generation of social entrepreneurs (socialpreneurs) who share a philanthropic heart. To meet that commitment, ELLA BING is offering an annual $1,000 scholarship to one U.S. undergraduate in business, finance, marketing, or related fields – and that undergrad could be you!
