34 by 34: Building a Better Future for Millions
At Cox, we’re empowering our people to build a better future for the next generation. 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.
This initiative gives Cox an unprecedented opportunity to innovate, take meaningful action in the communities where we live and work, expand our partnerships and translate our ambition into measurable progress.
Why 34 million? We first assessed the societal challenges that we’re positioned to impact, and we identified more than 30 million people needing support, growth and development opportunities to overcome those obstacles. We believe 34 million is an ambitious goal, but one that is achievable over the next decade given the talents, dedication and leadership of our people and partners.
Our Pathways to Progress
34 by 34 focuses on six pathways where Cox has the tools and know-how to make real impact:

UNLOCKING SKILLS AND SUPPORT FOR LONG-TERM SUCCESS

Partnering for a better future
Building a better future for the next generation requires dedication, teamwork and alignment. We partner with national and local organizations across the country to drive change and positive impact in our communities, from environmental groups to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) organizations. Along with financial support, we provide public service announcements and donate in-kind media to nonprofit partner organizations.
Our giving platform is focused on solving challenges for underserved communities in two strategic areas: environment and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math).
All of our partnerships are brought to life with employee engagement, community impact and employee involvement. For a list of our partners focused on Inclusion, Diversity & Equity, click here.
