Kennecott foundation

Rio Tinto Kennecott’s Charitable Foundation is a nonprofit that aims to help Utah residents. This includes supporting charities that assist children, veterans, senior citizens, and those struggling with homelessness, disabilities or low income.

Since 1992, the Foundation has donated more than $3 million dollars to local community charities.

The Foundation is made up of nine trustees from the greater Salt Lake Area and select Kennecott employees. These board members come from the southwestern part of the Salt Lake Valley, Magna and Copperton, and areas of expertise like education and humanities.

Foundation grant applications are now open through the end of business November 15, 2016. Please note, the Foundation will not consider applications with requests in excess of $5,000 per organization.

Also, grant requests must seek to support underserved populations in Salt Lake County with an emphasis on communities adjacent to Kennecott's operations.
