WHY WE GIVE BACK
At Cox Communications, community involvement is more than a commitment; it is a way of life. Nearly 2,000 employees live, work and play in the communities Cox serves within the Southeast Region. That presence translates into a strong dedication to grow and improve the quality of life in those cities and neighborhoods. The founder of our company, James M. Cox, was a public servant, and it is through his legacy that we give our time, talent and resources to our neighbors, the people we care about most.
NONPROFITS WE SUPPORT
In 2015, Cox Southeast Region launched a unique charitable giving campaign, Cox Charities, which is both funded and guided by employees. Cox Charities provides Innovation in Education grants, Community Investment grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, and a portion of dollars raised helps Cox employees in need through the Cox Benevolent Fund, a local employee relief program. In its first year, Cox employees awarded more than $120,000 to 40 nonprofits and schools in the Southeast Region.
Cox Charities was created to strengthen Cox communities through the support of programs that positively impact communities in the areas of education, technology, social issues, conservation and the arts.
