High Grade Helpers Employee Volunteer Program
Freeport-McMoRan's roots run deep, as does the company’s commitment to creating a culture of corporate citizenship throughout its global operations. This is supported and fostered in numerous ways, including company-sponsored volunteer opportunities for employees and their families through the High-Grade Helpers program. The High-Grade Helpers program is designed to give employees an opportunity to apply their skills to help their communities grow and thrive.

High-Grade Helper volunteer projects include park clean-ups, food drives, STEM education mentoring, as well as skills-based activities. In addition to the ongoing volunteer activities throughout the year, Freeport-McMoRan mobilizes sites across the globe to focus on a specific focus area during the annual Global Volunteer Month – a program that encourages employees to unite in serving local communities through site-supported projects focused on a selected theme, such as youth development, health & wellness and environmental stewardship.

United Way Employee Campaign
Freeport-McMoRan partners with United Way and runs an employee campaign to raise funds for the United Way Chapters located in our operating communities.
