Employee Matching Gifts Program

The Freeport-McMoRan Foundation will match employee contributions of $25 or more, up to an annual maximum of $40,000. The first $1,000 contributed per eligible nonprofit organization will be double matched and any amount above $1,000 will be single matched, subject to the annual maximum. In 2013, the Foundation gave over $5M to organizations through the Matching Gifts and United Way programs
