Central Florida nonprofits encouraged to apply for event sponsorships from Cox

Press release from Cox Communications

Local nonprofits that are planning fundraising and awareness events in the Central Florida market are encouraged to apply for an event sponsorship from Cox Communications. Cox is currently accepting applications for events occurring between July 1 and December 31, 2022. If your nonprofit is planning an event that will take place during these dates and looking for support, apply for cash or in-kind sponsorships at Cox’s Charitable Giving Site. The deadline for applications is Saturday, April 30. Organizations will be notified if their requests are approved in early June.

“The heart of our company is to support the communities we serve,” said Aimee Pfannenstiel, market vice president for Cox Central Florida. “It’s in our company’s DNA to work with local nonprofits to help provide services that improve the welfare of all our neighbors. We look forward to finding new partnerships and ways we can help enhance the quality of life in Central Florida.” 

In 2021, Cox gave approximately $1 million in cash and in-kind services to nonprofits in the Central Florida Market, which includes Alachua and Marion Counties. These sponsorships are specifically held for nonprofit fundraising events, not general donations, and the organization must be a registered 501(c)3.
