LOUISIANA – Cox employees will give more than $50,000 to schools in its Southeast service area through the Cox Charities Innovation in Education program. Pre-K-12 teachers are invited to apply for grants of up to $2,500 at www.CoxCharitiesSER.org now until February 28, 2021. Cox will notify recipients in May and announce the winning grant recipients this fall.

Innovation in Education grants support technology, programs and curriculum that promote students’ academic success and enhance the educational experience.

Cox employees donate to the program through recurring payroll deductions and one-time gifts. Funds that are raised locally support local nonprofits along with supporting educators in the areas where Cox employees live.

“Cox remains committed to helping students reach their full potential whether it’s in a digital, hybrid or traditional classroom, “said Erin Monroe Wesley, vice president of government and public affairs. “Our employees are passionate about supporting programs that bring innovative technology and skills development to students across our footprint.” Cox’s Southeast Region includes: Acadiana, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Florida’s Gulf Coast (Pensacola and Fort Walton), Central Florida (Gainesville and Ocala) and Middle Georgia (Macon and Warner Robins).

Branded under the theme “Give Where You Live,” Cox Charities was created to strengthen Cox communities through the support of programs that positively impact communities in the areas of education, technology, social issues, conservation and the arts. In addition to the Innovation in Education grants, Cox Charities offers Community Investment grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations (with a grant cycle opening in August 2021.) Last year, employees in the Southeast Region pledged over $150,000 to Cox Charities.
