Newmont Mining employees raise $2 million for local non-profits

Posted on November 19, 2012 by Minerals Make Life

Through the company’s employee giving program, Newmont Mining Corporation's employees have pledged more than $1.08 million to the NMC Legacy Fund for 2013. The program, which encompasses a direct employee giving campaign, community contributions program and a community endowment fund, is an industry-leading example of a sustainable investment program designed to assist in meeting long-term community social service needs. 

Newmont matched employee pledges dollar for dollar, bringing the 2013 total to an impressive $2.16 million. More than 150 local organizations in northern Nevada communities where Newmont operates will benefit from the 2013 NMC Legacy Fund.

“Our employees are the driving force that continues to make this program so successful. They routinely give back to the communities in which we live and work, by volunteering time, energy and their talents as well as the monetary donations and pledges to the NMC Legacy Fund,” said Tom Kerr, Newmont’s North American Regional senior vice president.
