The Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation granted $500,000 to thirteen programs from local nonprofit and other organizations in Grant County, NM.

The awards represent Freeport-McMoRan’s efforts to partner with local nonprofits and other organizations working on projects that create sustainable benefits for the community.

Freeport-McMoRan’s Community Investment Fund was established in 2011. It is governed by a committee consisting of nine community leaders from diverse organizations and two Freeport-McMoRan representatives from Grant County. The community leaders were selected by the Grant County Community Partnership Panel. This Panel was established by Freeport-McMoRan four years ago to foster open and ongoing dialogue with the community, allowing the company and the community to work together to develop thoughtful solutions that address community issues.

The Community Investment Fund Committee cultivates and selects programs that address the priorities identified by the community to receive financial support based on established criteria, and strives to assist in the success of recipient programs. Funding decisions are made by the Committee.
