The Catholic Business Network of Montgomery County, CBN-MC, is an independent, non-profit organization of businesses and individual professionals working together to support Catholic education in Montgomery County Maryland.
We apply the principles of our faith in the marketplace, promote valuable networking opportunities among CBN members, as well as provide additional support within the County for the education of our young men and women. Any profits generated through the association, including several specific fund raising events during the year, go to support Montgomery County, Maryland Catholic schools through the CBN-MC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
From the beginning the members of CBN-MC have made Catholic Education the focus of their charitable work. Since inception, CBN-MC distributed more than $1,000,000 in development grants to Catholic schools, essay scholarships and need-based scholarships.
As a networking center, CBN-MC has successfully pulled Catholic business men and women together across parish boundaries creating an increased awareness within the parishes of who is in business and what goods and services are offered. Time is arranged at breakfast meetings for structured table networking. At each breakfast members report the deals they have made with fellow members in the recent past.
