The future of tomorrow lies with our youth.
It’s an age-old adage that speaks volumes toward the potential of today’s students and the impact they can have on a community. Which is why Cox Communications and The San Diego Foundation believe it’s imperative to support that potential.
Community Growth Through Education
For 15 years, Cox has provided more than 500 college scholarships totaling a whopping $1 million to graduating high school seniors through its Cox Cares Foundation, which is administered by The San Diego Foundation.

Thanks to a corporate fund set up at The San Diego Foundation, Cox employees provide the financial support, which is bolstered by a company match.
The Cox Scholars program enables employees to play a collective, integral role in the success and development of youth within San Diego.
“We believe it’s critical to invest in our future leaders,” shared Cami Mattson, Cox Communications’ Director of Community Relations. “The fact that our employees contribute into the program through payroll deductions helps us build a culture of empowerment that gives back to the community we live in.”
Employee Driven Corporate Giving
Education and scholarships are just one slice of the charitable pie.
Because the Cox Cares Foundation is funded and administered by the company’s employees, who live in San Diego, the foundation’s philanthropic efforts reflect what is important to the local community.
Connecting with the community is a core value for Cox.
The company partners with a variety of community organizations and charitable groups each year to strengthen education, decrease the digital divide, support the military and encourage environmental responsibility.
By investing in these groups, Cox is making San Diego a more vibrant region to live, work, and play.
Companies Give Back
Corporate social responsibility is a growing issue in today’s workplace. The benefits are abundant and more San Diego companies and organizations are coming to The San Diego Foundation for help.
