16 Navajo women became the latest graduating class of Freeport-McMoRan's Project DreamCatcher, a free business training program that aims to create economic opportunities for female Native entrepreneurs. The program is the result of a partnership between the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation and the Thunderbird School of Global Management, which is part of Arizona State University.


The Freeport-McMoRan Foundation supports the Sahuarita Food Bank as it expands to become a community resource center. The 13,500-square-foot facility will have enough space for programs addressing health and nutrition, family support and workplace development


Freeport-McMoRan Named to Forbes 2020 Just 100 List for third consecutive year! The list, released in partnership with JUST Capital, highlights U.S. companies that go above and beyond for their workers, customers and the environment.


More businesses in Graham and Greenlee County can now participate in a micro-loan program from Local First Arizona Foundation and the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation thanks to additional grant funding of $50,000. The Micro-loan Program was launched in Graham County in 2018 through a partnership between Freeport-McMoRan Foundation and Local First Arizona Foundation, with additional support provided by Vitalyst Health Foundation and Community Investment Corporation


A $2.5 million award from the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation will help the University of Arizona advance responsible mining and use of materials through workforce development, research and industry solutions. The award will be shared by the Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources, the Department of Mining and Geological Engineering, and the Department of Geosciences' Lowell Program in Economic Geology.
