Cox Communications and the James M. Cox Foundation have been philanthropic partners of Boys & Girls Clubs of America and local Clubs since 1977.
Providing Technology Access to Young People
Support from Cox is bridging the digital divide and helping to close the technological achievement gap for many disadvantaged youth by providing access to the same technology opportunities afforded many of their peers. Cox generously provides contributions to BGCA to fund technology centers and technology integration services in key Cox markets. Monetary contributions to BGCA have exceeded $1.6 million, while total Movement-wide cash and in-kind internet, cable and advertising support is valued at more than $20 million. Connect2Compete events are hosted at Clubs in the Cox service footprint, and Cox and its local affiliates have established significant advances in both technology and awareness-building for many Clubs across the nation.
