Sparklight and other CableOne companies will open fall applications for the company’s Charitable Giving Fund next week.

The fund annually awards $200,000 in grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.

This fall, applications will be accepted from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31.

Grants will be made available across communities served by Sparklight and the other Cable One family of brands (Fidelity Communications, Clearwave® and ValuNet Fiber). The fund will concentrate support in the following priority areas: education and digital literacy; hunger relief and food insecurity; and community development.

Last spring, the company awarded more than $100,000 in grants to 30 nonprofits, including organizations serving the homeless, providing child advocacy, offering senior assistance and supplying food to those in need.

The Charitable Giving Fund is an extension of the company’s existing corporate social responsibility efforts, which include providing Chromebooks for students; supporting EmbraceRace, a national organization to promote child and adult racial justice advocates; aiding Special Olympics Arizona; planting trees through the Arbor Day Foundation; and providing assistance to Keep America Beautiful.

“We are committed to connecting customers in the cities and towns we serve to what matters most,” said Julie Laulis, president and CEO. “Through our philanthropic initiatives and partnerships, we provide support for nonprofit organizations to build strong and vibrant communities, improve quality of life and make a positive difference where we live and work.”
