Freeport-McMoRan employees turn out by the hundreds for Global Volunteer Month. Volunteering momentum was in full force during this year's Global Volunteer Month in April when more than 960 employees, their friends and family from across 22 Freeport-McMoRan sites participated in 42 events marking the month.


The Boys and Girls Club of the Gila Valley received a $20,000 grant from Freeport-McMoRan for its Robotics Program and the team readies themselves for competition at Northern Arizona University. The Robotics Team, named the Nerdy Newbs, will be evaluated against other teams in computer programming, drone flight and geological research.


The Freeport-McMoRan Foundation provides matching funds to help secure REDI grants for collaborative community efforts that build entrepreneurial ecosystems. United States Department of Agriculture issued a release awards Rural Economic Development Innovation (REDI) technical grants to 47 rural communities including Graham and Greenlee County, Gila County, southwest New Mexico and Summit County, Colorado.


With the success of its Nemangkawi Mining Institute program in Papua, Indonesia, and its long-standing partnership with the San Carlos Apache Tribe, Freeport-McMoRan brought a similar training program to San Carlos. As of June 2019, 648 tribal members have graduated from the San Carlos Training Institute. In addition to the technical training, the students also receive valuable lessons in life skills, preparing them emotionally for their journey into the future.


Freeport-McMoRan named to Corporate Responsibility Magazine's 100 Best Corporate Citizens list for the eighth time. Corporate Responsibility Magazine is a business-focused magazine aimed toward promoting corporate responsibility practices.
