About this funder:



Cox Charities awards grants on an annual basis to nonprofit organizations that serve the areas served by Cox Arizona. Funds are used to directly support K-12 youth-education programs and not general or capital funds. Funding decisions are made by a committee comprised of Cox employees who contribute to Cox Charities and Cox Charities fundraising partners.

Grants are awarded on an annual basis in response to applications from non-profit 501(c)(3) qualified organizations whose goals and programs meet our mission statement. We make every effort to direct our contributions where they can have the greatest impact while addressing the most critical needs.
