Cox Central Region Sponsorship Request

At Cox, community service is more than just a corporate commitment — it’s a way of life for our employees and a part of our company culture. Our founder James Cox believed in the value of building and investing in the communities we serve and more than 100 years later, that culture still thrives throughout our organization. 

We know now, more than ever, there is important work to be done in our communities and we know it cannot be done alone. That’s why Cox is proud to partner with hundreds of nonprofit organizations in addressing the critical needs of our community.

Funding Guidelines

When considering applications for support, Cox Central Region uses the following guidelines:

  • Cox's primary focus is on youth, technology and education.  Cox supports events, programs and initiatives that further our goal of building strong communities and enriching the lives of those who live there.

  • Cox only awards funds to organizations that provide assistance to Cox Communications service areas.

  • Diversity is a core value at Cox and we strongly encourage applications from organizations that meet the needs of our community's unique and diverse population, including minorities, women and the disadvantaged.

  • We also look for opportunities to involve our employees in community projects, combining our financial support with the time and talent of employee volunteers.
