C Spire FoundationThe C Spire Foundation is a private foundation funded by C Spire Wireless.
C Spire shareholders and employees always make community service a top priority. In all our community efforts, our goal is to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. We do this by targeting areas such as academic, athletic, health, wellness, safety, civic and scholarship programs that improve lives and help communities thrive. Our primary community focus is on improving opportunities for education in Mississippi.
The mission of the C Spire Foundation is to provide grants to Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning in order to help advance college education opportunities at these universities. We also consider supporting 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations which are committed to improving the quality of life in the markets we serve with special prioritization given to those entities that do so with a motivation to serve Christ through their respective endeavors.
C Spire's success as a company is built on our vision to be the best service provider in the region, as well as our core value of doing things the right way for our customers and employees. Whether it is feeding the hungry, mentoring students or sponsoring community events, hundreds of C Spire employees are inspired to serve their communities through volunteerism and community grants. It's that passion and work ethic that exemplifies the heart of our employees and the work supported by the C Spire Foundation.
