Cox Communications announced today that the Cox Connects Community Investment Grants are now available through the Cox Connects Foundation.
In 2010, the Cox Connects Foundation will award more than $290,000 to Oklahoma City and Tulsa area nonprofit organizations. Applications are available at www.coxconnectsok.com and will be accepted through July 1.
The Cox Connects Foundation provides community investment grants up to $5,000. The grants are designed to assist nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organizations that provide outstanding programs that benefit communities in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa-metro Cox Communications service areas.
“The CoxConnects Foundation is funded and directed by Oklahoma employees, who decide how every dollar is invested back into the community,” said Tiffani Bruton, director of public affairs. “Our company is passionate about supporting local programs that positively impact Oklahomans and the communities where we do business. If a local nonprofit organization seeks funding for a program, this is a great opportunity to apply.”
The Cox Connects Foundation was created to strengthen Cox communities through support of programs that positively impact Oklahoma’s youth in the areas of education, technology, health and the arts.
In addition to the Cox Connects Community Investment Grants, the Cox Connects Foundation offers Innovation in Education grants for K-12 classroom programs, Cox Connects Education Scholarships to students entering college and a portion of the funds help Cox Oklahoma employees through the Cox Cares Employee Relief program.
Since inception in 2005, the Cox Connects Foundation has invested more than $2.0 million in Oklahoma communities.
