Hecla and our employees strengthen our communities and our company by partnering and contributing in a meaningful way to the economic and social well-being of our host communities. Our employees give back through volunteerism, fundraising, coaching sports teams, and serving on civic and education boards.
We also make it a priority to provide financial contributions toward education, youth activities, community programs, and health services activities. Over the past 10 years, Hecla has donated nearly $6 million – $3.4 million of which was donated by the Hecla Charitable Foundation.
“Many people in Juneau never have the opportunity to see the mine in operation. Yet, when you look around the community and you see the investment that Hecla makes in our community – the support they provide for sports teams, for the university, for K-12 education and in so many ways. The wages that people earn at the mine and what that brings to our community of Juneau is huge.” Rick Caulfield, Former Chancellor, University of Alaska Southeast
