Relief is a Call or Click Away

Established in 2005 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Cox Employee Relief Fund (CERF) has a mission to assist employees and their immediate families impacted by life’s setbacks.

Be Prepared for Emergencies

For many parts of the country, this time of year means severe weather.

The Cox Employee Relief Fund (CERF) helps employees recover from the devastation caused by hurricane, tornado, fire, earthquake, snowstorm or flood. Its funds are designed to help fill in the gaps for basic, non-luxury items essential to life that cannot be met through personal resources, insurance or public programs (such as FEMA or Red Cross).

CERF can also help with hotel expenses for short-term stays, rental cars, clothing, lost school supplies and household necessities like furniture, kitchenware and linens.

In addition to helping employees who are affected by severe weather, CERF also assists Cox families affected by catastrophic injury or illness, loss of a family member or other hardships.

Cox employees who may be experiencing bumps in the road are encouraged to apply for assistance from CERF one of three ways:

  1. Talk with your local human resources representative.
  2. Apply online at
  3. Email
