Community Grants Application Process
Recipients will be selected by considering a number of factors, including the following criteria:
How well the project aligns with the Cox Charities focus area: STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math).
The overall community impact of the program and a clear explanation of what makes this program unique.
The ability to define clear metrics for success.
NOTE: Organizations that have been funded by Cox Charities in past two years consecutively (i.e. 2021 AND 2022) will not be eligible for this round of funding.
To optimize our impact, we generally do not support:
Arts & Culture
Events (i.e. galas, walks/runs)
Health & Wellness (i.e. disease prevention, health related missions)
Labor or fraternal organizations
Organizations that discriminate
Non 501(c)3 designated organizations
Recreational sports teams and clubs
Religious or political promotion
