About this funder:
Women's Development Initiatives
We are committed to investing in efforts that increase education and economic opportunities for citizens in our operating communities. In particular, we want to ensure that women have suitable, relevant, functional opportunities to be full participants in economic development and attain greater levels of prosperity. When women gain skills, they gain confidence, increase their productivity, mentor others, raise their income levels and reinvest in their children’s education, their family’s health, and economic activities at the community level.
Women's Development Grants Program
The Freeport-McMoRan Women’s Development Grants support organizations providing women and girls with opportunities to:
- Advance entrepreneurial endeavors via small business development training or support activities that lead to the creation of a new, expanded or retained business.
- Increase attainment levels via education or workforce skills training that lead to financial capability and employment.
- Increase attainment levels via college/career readiness, leadership/character development or entrepreneurship education programs that lead to matriculation or graduation
