THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES, ONE GOAL: LEAVE THE WORLD BETTER THAN WE FOUND IT

Team Cox is our enterprisewide, employee-powered volunteer force. We are thousands with one goal: Leave the world better that we found it. Team Cox’s hard work highlights that doing the right thing for the environment and our community is at the very core of who we are.

When it comes to building a better future, we start from the inside out, At Cox Enterprises, we live this value by donating time as well as money. We believe in rolling up our sleeves and getting to work in the communities we serve and call home. Every year, Team Cox volunteers rack up tens of thousands of volunteer hours.

OUR AREAS OF FOCUS

Our volunteerism is focused on solving challenges for underserved communities in two strategic areas: 

  • Environment
  • STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math)

In addition to volunteerism, we support our communities and partners through financial donation and by generating awareness through in-kind media support.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta

In 2019 Cox and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta joined forces to launch a new approach to mentoring with a program called Beyond School Walls. This program combines traditional mentorship with an immersive educational experience. Students come to Cox Enterprises twice a month to meet. Each visit includes a group curriculum presentation and time for the Bigs and Littles to reflect on the curriculum together.

Ocean Conservancy

Ocean Conservancy

For Team Cox volunteers, a day at the beach is about a lot more than sand and surf - it’s an opportunity to make a positive impact on our oceans. Our partnership and volunteer efforts with Ocean Conservancy help educate and empower citizens to act on behalf of the ocean. We’ve gathered at beaches in California, Florida, New York and Washington to help remove more than five tons of trash as part of these beach cleanups.
