Press release from Cox Communications

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Local teachers and schools are encouraged to submit applications for funding through Cox Charities Innovation in Education grants by Friday, April 21. Cox employees contribute all year to the Cox Charities program out of their own paychecks, and this year they will provide grants of up to $2,500 to support student learning programs focused on education, technology, and social well-being.  

 ”Our company was founded by a schoolteacher 125 years ago, and he had a passion to help teachers and students succeed in the classroom,” said Aimee Pfannenstiel, market vice president of Cox Central Florida. “Today, the Cox family continues to support local educators, as do our employees. Giving money from their own paychecks is one way our local team can help bring fun and creative learning to our schools.”  

Educators in public and private schools located within Cox’s Central Florida footprint can apply at  www.CoxCharitiesSER.org , now through April 21, 2023. Cox will announce the recipients and distribute funds in May.    

Cox Charities also provides Community Investment grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofits and will open its next grant cycle in August. Through the “Give Where You Live” grant program, funds raised locally stay local to support nonprofits and educators in the areas where Cox employees live.
