The Main Street parking area in Jerome, Arizona will be enhanced by a $28,000 investment from the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation. The funds will go towards the installation of a curb and gutter as well as a concrete island along Hull Avenue.


Freeport-McMoRan Foundation supports the first phase of a long-planned Main Street Plaza project in Silver City, New Mexico. The Main Street Plaza area is used weekly by the popular Silver City Farmers' Market, during the summer months and the downtown Farmers' Market will begin its 2019 season - with the added luxury of on-site public restrooms - on May 11.


A new space for informal, fun and interactive learning around science, math and technology opens in historic mining town of Bisbee, Arizona. Multiple partners and investors, including an investment from Freeport-McMoRan, contributed to getting the Bisbee Science Lab up and running.


Freeport-McMoRan employees just beat their own United Way record - in a major way. During the company's recent campaign, employees pledged $3.5 million, which grew to $9.8 million when combined with the company match. This amount - an increase of 18 percent over last year - marks the most money raised by the most employees in the history of the campaign.


Cochise County junior high and high school students learn first hand about award-winning reclamation work via a tour at Bisbee Discontinued Operations. The group toured the site as part of the Chief Science Officer program, which is sponsored by Freeport-McMoRan. As officers, the students help promote STEM education and activities at their schools in Cochise County.
