The James M. Cox Foundation, named after our founder, provides philanthropic support for nonprofit organizations in communities where Cox Enterprises does business.
The foundation concentrates its support, which includes requests for capital campaigns and special projects, in the following priority areas: Conservation and environment; Early childhood education (birth to 5 years); Empowering families and individuals for success; and Health.
Cox Conserves is our national sustainability program, which was launched in 2007 by Jim Kennedy, Chairman Emeritus and Chairman, James M. Cox Foundation. Cox Conserves focuses its priorities on energy conservation, water conservation, waste diversion and recycling and community engagement.
With ambitious goals to send zero waste to landfill by 2024 and be carbon and water neutral by 2034, Cox is on a journey to become a more sustainable company.
Cox Conserves Heroes is part of our national sustainability initiative, designed to recognize youth and adult volunteers, plus nonprofits, making a positive impact on our environment.
The Heroes are actively reducing or reusing carbon/energy and water, or are minimizing waste sent to landfills, in line with our own sustainability goals.
Our social impact initiative aims to remove obstacles and expand access to programs to help 34 million people live more prosperous lives by 2034.
From bridging the digital divide to addressing social equity and environmental sustainability challenges, we’re committed to growing the good in the communities we serve, one action at a time.
Together, we are dedicated to innovating and working to make the world a better place. We focus our collective impact and commitments on three areas: Caring for People, Protecting the Planet and Innovating for Impact.
