Newmont Nevada’s sixth annual Legacy Fund, an employee-giving campaign, set an all-time record for pledged dollars this year.
Nevada employees committed $1.22 million, which Newmont will match dollar for dollar, bringing the total to $2.44 million. That money will be distributed next year to more than 200 nonprofit agencies and other organizations serving our northern Nevada communities. In addition, we exceeded our employee participation goal with more than 71 percent of employees participating.
This is the fourth consecutive year in which at least 70 percent of Newmont’s Nevada employees have participated in the Legacy Fund campaign, helping to generate more than $2 million annually for the communities of northern Nevada.
In addition, our employees’ direct support, along with Newmont’s annual corporate commitment, are helping the Endowment Fund component of the Legacy Fund continue growing each year. The Endowment Fund was established in 2011 and has a current balance of approximately $1.1 million. The rationale behind the Endowment Fund is to help support northern Nevada communities in the years and decades ahead.
“We are proud of our employees in Nevada and sincerely thank them for continuing to drive the success of the Legacy Fund,” said Tom Kerr, Senior Vice President for North America. “Their commitment is helping to maintain healthy and vibrant communities where we live and work.”
