Cultural Heritage

The heart of a community can be found in its celebration of cultural heritage. We support organizations and endeavors that embrace and preserve the cultural heritage and historic charm of communities where we have a presence.

In Bisbee, Freeport-McMoRan made a multi—year pledge totaling $100,000 beginning in 2011 for restoration of the historic Central School.  Originally built in 1905, the building received new life as a vibrant art venue for the creation and presentation of the arts, studio spaces, cultural programs and arts education for all ages that appeal to residents and visitors alike.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Freeport-McMoRan has played a major role in supporting Bisbee’s cultural and educational quality of life.”
