Named "Most Philanthropic Company" in Oregon five times
Intel Anchors Oregon's Economy
Intel’s operations in Oregon stretch across six campuses west of Portland in Washington County. The campuses comprise Intel’s largest and most comprehensive site in the world—a global center of semiconductor research and manufacturing and the anchor of Oregon’s economy. The company has nearly 18,600 employees in Oregon, making it the state’s largest private employer.
Since 1974, when Intel acquired its first property in Oregon, the company’s capital investments in the state have topped $25 billion. That amount will increase significantly with the addition of D1X, the newest expansion to our development facilities under construction through 2015, at the Ronler Acres Campus. Intel is the largest property taxpayer in Washington County, with payments of approximately $30 million a year.
In 2014, Intel was named the “Most Admired Technology Company” in Oregon for the ninth year in a row, based on a survey of 2,500 CEO’s and top-level managers throughout the state. In addition, Intel was recognized, for the sixth time, as the “Most Philanthropic Company” in Oregon.
Intel in the Community
Intel donations in Oregon in 2014 totaled $6.5 million. The company is a proud supporter of Oregon education, with more than $2.5 million of donations going to schools and education programs.
Through the Intel Involved Matching Grant Program, the Intel Foundation extends the impact of employees’ volunteerism by donating cash to qualified schools and nonprofit organizations where Intel employees and retirees volunteer 20 hours or more in a year. This resulted in over 313,000 volunteer hours across Oregon in 2014. Intel employees and retirees provide additional support to the community through the annual Intel Community Giving Campaign.
