ABOUT

Cox believes life gets better when there are more moments of real, human connection. Cox and its employees live and work toward a company-wide mission: connecting our customers to the people and things you care about the most. Their knowledgeable and down-to-earth employees are there to support their customers and are genuinely eager to help, be it through technology or philanthropy—or both.

 

WHY THEY GIVE

Nonprofit organizations help foster growth and strength in their communities, and Cox has a long history of community involvement. With their philanthropic efforts focused on youth and education, diversity and environmental issues, they understand the importance of serving the communities in which we live and work. They encourage their employees to take part in volunteer work, whether packing food boxes or cleaning up beaches.

 

MISSION

Cox’s mission is to connect our customers to the people and things they care about most.

 

METHODS

Cox gives back to the community through donations of both time and money. In 2019, employees throughout the Southeast donated more than $170,000 to the Cox Charities program, which offered eight local grants to New Orleans nonprofits to support community programs and projects. Grant recipients were Educare New Orleans, Raphael Village, The First 72+, Operation Restoration, Angels’ Place, Luke’s House, Upturn Arts and Kingsley House, Inc.

Local employees read and processed the applications, which allowed them to determine the best impact of their dollars. The grants were funded via the generosity of Cox employees, who gave from their own paychecks to support these organizations.
