Investing More Than $6 million TO SUPPORT YOUTH EDUCATION PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT CONNECTICUT, OHIO and RHODE ISLAND.
Since 2001, Cox has invested more than $6 million in Cox Charities grants and in-kind support to organizations providing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math programming to youth throughout Connecticut, Ohio, and Rhode Island.
Cox Charities is funded entirely, by Cox employees and business partners. The Cox Charities Community Grants are reviewed by a group of community, business and Cox leadership, who evaluate the programs to ensure our giving is meeting the program criteria and needs of the community.
Cox Charities funds organizations that focus on youth and education in the areas of STEAM. To optimize our impact, we typically do not support:
Animal welfare Labor or fraternal organizations
Capital expenditures (i.e. purchase of computers, tablets, etc.) Organizations that discriminate
Events (i.e. galas, walks/runs) Non 501 (c) 3 designated organizations
Health & Wellness (i.e. disease prevention, health related missions) Recreational sports teams and clubs
Scholarship funds Religious and/or political promotion
