Alcoa’s Yadkin Project has been an integral part of the fabric of central North Carolina since 1915.  For years, residents and visitors alike have enjoyed the many recreational opportunities made available and protected by Alcoa-Yadkin. Beyond the positive economic development spurred by the Yadkin Project itself, communities around the company’s operations have benefited from financial and volunteer support provided by Alcoa-Yadkin and its employees to improve the quality of life.

Alcoa is committed to making a positive impact in the communities and regions where it operates through grants and sponsorships.  We are proud to support numerous organizations and projects which improve our communities and protect our environment.


Alcoa and Alcoa Foundation have donated more than $4 million in the past 25 years to support economic development and assist nearly 100 local non-profit organizations.
