There are many ways to have a positive impact in the community. At Cox, we believe that impact starts close to home. In addition to awarding grants to community nonprofits, a donation of $9,100 was made to the Cox Employee Relief Fund (CERF) on behalf of employees. CERF is a 501(c)3 dedicated to assisting employees and their families impacted by natural disasters, injury or illness, or loss of a family member.
As a family-owned business with employees living and working in our local communities, we want to build a better future for the next generation. To date, Cox employees in Virginia have donated more than $1.2 million to Virginia nonprofits through Cox Charities.
