“Cox Charities is not only funded but is also guided by employees thanks to enthusiastic employee advisory councils in each of our six markets,” said Fran Gladden, vice president of government and public affairs for Cox’s Southeast region “These employees determine how each dollar is invested and are passionate about supporting programs that positively impact where we do business.”

According to Cox Communications, interested agencies “can apply for grants up to $5,000.” 

If you are interested in a Cox Communications Community Investments Grant, apply at Cox Charities through September 28.
