Our employees generously donate their skills, technology expertise, funds, and millions of hours of service to tackle environmental challenges, improve education, and help uplift people. Through grants and matching programs, the Intel Foundation ignites and fosters employees’ passion for philanthropy and desire to help solve global challenges.
The Foundation matches charitable donations of Intel employees and US retirees to eligible nonprofit organizations or schools, up to the annually allotted individual matching budget. This program helps communities rise while increasing employees’ ability to support the causes they care about most.
We extend the impact of volunteerism by donating $10 per volunteer hour to qualified nonprofits and schools where Intel employees and retirees donate at least 20 hours of service in a year. This program helps to recognize employees and give them an opportunity to earn money for organizations that are meaningful to them.
The Intel Foundation awards seed grants of up to $5,000 to support employee-initiated community service projects. Projects are selected based on their originality, potential impact, and expected outcomes.
Each year, 10 Intel super volunteers each receive a $2,500 grant for the charitable organization or school of their choice. One overall winner, chosen from among these 10 finalists, receives an additional $7,500 grant for his or her designated organization.
