Nonprofits as Partners
We rely on partnerships with nonprofit organizations and NGOs to develop programs & services that help communities grow and thrive.
Generally we focus on the development of partnerships in the following focus areas which represent critical foundations for sustainable communities.
- Education & Training
- Safety, Health & Wellness
- Economic Development
- Environmental Stewardship
- Culture & Heritage
Only IRS determined tax exempt entities such as nonprofits with a 501(c)3 designation, schools and government institutions are eligible for social investment dollars from the Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation.
See Our Programs to find out how to apply for funding, either through our Social Investment Program or one of our community-specific Community Investment Funds.
We also believe in investing in the capacity of the nonprofit sector. We partner with a variety of organizations that serve the nonprofit community by developing their leadership, management, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability.
Partnership with nonprofits helps fulfill our commitment to build capacity that sustains communities when our operations eventually cease.
