Stamford, Conn. — Charter Communications, Inc., today announced the launch of its newest community-based philanthropic program, Spectrum Employee Community Grants, designed to support local community organizations nominated by employees who volunteer with them. In the initial phase, 43 community organizations will be funded.
“Through Spectrum Employee Community Grants, we’re proud to provide support to vital community organizations where our local employees are volunteering their time and talent,” said Rahman Khan, Vice President of Community Impact for Charter Communications. “We have a strong and committed employee base, and together we’re building stronger communities where our customers and employees live and work.”
