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.

"On behalf of Freeport-McMoRan leadership, I would like to thank all the employees whose generosity made our campaign a tremendous success," said Linda Hayes, Vice President-Communications and United Way Committee Chair. "This level of giving is a reflection of how deeply our employees care about the communities they call home."

Each year, the company partners with United Way to raise funds for health and human service agencies providing vital resources in the areas of education, financial wellness and health.

The company's campaign took place in November with a new, movie-inspired theme: Lights, Camera, Action – Give to United Way. Employee coordinators at each site led local efforts, with some sites holding special activities such as prize drawings, volunteer events and competitions.

Employees donating at least $25 were entered into grand prize drawings, with Donovan Nelson at Chino winning a $500 U.S. Airways gift card plus four Admirals Club passes and Charles Grundell in Phoenix winning two Delta Air Lines gift certificates. Winners in all other prize categories were contacted directly.

As in past campaigns, the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation double matched employees' contributions of $25 or more up to the first $1,000 and single matched amounts more than $1,000.
