The Cox Connects Community Investment Grant program is designed to assist nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations that provide outstanding programs that benefit communities in the Cox Oklahoma service area. Cox Connects Community Investment funds are targeted toward programs that further Cox Communications' goal to build strong communities by enriching the lives of youth in the areas of education, technology, social issues and the arts.
Grant applications are reviewed annually by the Cox Connects Advisory Council, comprised of Cox Communications employees and representatives from the local community foundation. Funding decisions are based on the quality of the applicant’s program, and service to area youth in the areas of education, technology, social issues and the arts. Additional considerations include the scope of each program, the overall impact on the community, the number of people served and the validity and urgency of needs addressed.
