“Tech Boosts” Program From Cox Communications Seeks Nominations For $30K In Grants To Local Nonprofits

Despite the important work nonprofits and community organizations do in the communities they serve, many are lacking the modern technology tools needed to perform their missions to the fullest. To bridge this technology gap, Cox Communications today announced the call for nominations for its “Tech Boosts” program, which awards grants to nonprofit groups committed to investing in technology equipment for the betterment of its patrons and mission. The nomination period closes October 13, 2021.  

This marks the fifth year of the Cox Communications Tech Boosts program, and the goal remains the same: to help nonprofits invest in technology equipment and services that enrich the lives of community members while fulfilling their missions to the fullest. Last year’s recipient in Ohio was the Olmsted Community Center. Three $10,000 grants will be awarded in the company’s northeast region.

This technology grant is awarded to nonprofit organizations that demonstrate how they will positively impact the community in one of the following categories: Environment and Conservation; Health; Early Childhood Education; and Empowering Families and Individuals for Success.

“The Cox Communications Tech Boosts program is proud to return for a fifth year to deliver game-changing technology to community organizations in need,” said Ross Nelson, senior vice president and region manager, Cox Communications. “The pandemic has proven that our community partners are more essential than ever for giving our children places to learn, connect, and grow, and we’re eager to deploy Tech Boosts into local organizations that are developing curriculums to give young people access to the training and tools they need for the future.”
