The James M. Cox Foundation provides philanthropic support for nonprofit organizations in communities where Cox Enterprises and its subsidiaries do business. The Foundation makes gifts primarily through capital campaigns, such as for building construction and renovation; and for special projects, such as program expansion or capacity-building. Over the past five-year period, Foundation charitable grants totaled more than $75 million.
Our 2015 and 2016 grants varied in size and scope, but build upon and reinforce one another in many ways. In several instances, we are investing in local models that are being scaled at the state and national levels for broader impact across Cox markets.
