Freeport-McMoRan's Bat Week shines a light on biodiversity and conservation. Freeport-McMoRan partnered with a number of national and local nonprofit organizations, agencies and businesses in hosting Bat Week which in 2019 ranged from field trips, classroom presentations with live animals, STEM and conservation activities to trail maintenance and habitat restoration for students and community members.


Freeport-McMoRan Foundation supports the Gila Valley Food System Coalition in Safford to map local food system resources and identify gaps and opportunities to increase food security. The Coalition has identified four priorities; data collection, centralized information and referral, a commercial kitchen and kitchen co-op space, and a farmers' market a working group assigned to each.


Freeport-McMoRan received the Spirit of Education Award from Tucson Values Teachers for its significant contributions to K-12 education in Southern Arizona.​ "To me, they are like a lighthouse. They shine a bright light." These are the words Dr. Manny Valenzuela, Superintendent of Sahuarita Unified School District, used to describe Freeport-McMoRan.


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
